Cats don't die, but a box of cats is 'rescued' from different dangerous situations and the box of kittens gets thrown by Dee every time she goes in to save them. I'm not sure if the cats were real or not, but there were implications of cat abuse.

S11 E5: Dennis gifts Mac a dog, which he forgets to feed for days on end. The dog dies, but there is nothing graphic.

No animal abuse is shown in any episode but mentioned a few times throughout the show. In A Very Sunny Christmas, two of the main characters mention hurting cats as children. One of the main characters also “bashes” rats found in their bar with a specific rat stick, as mentioned multiple times. Lastly, in two separate episodes, characters describe injuring dogs, with one paralyzing one dog and the other because the dog bit the girl he stalks but not how severe he injured the dog.

There is talk about getting a "dog fighting pitbull" and rehabilitating it to fight people, but it doesn't actually happen. It's just mentioned passively.

Not the only example, but kind of between Dennis and Mac. They're not a couple but they live together, Mac is in love with Dennis and their relationship is in almost every way romantic. They're both violent towards each other, Mac has poisoned Dennis and Dennis apparently sometimes scratches Mac's face (deep enough to draw blood.) Also a lot of manipulation and gaslighting going on from both sides. Also I think it's mentioned that Frank used to hit Barbara.

There is an episode centered around Dee and Charlie being tricked into eating human meat and then trying to find more. It turns out that it wasn't real human meat but they do not find out till the end. Lots of talk about eating people in this one.

*spoiler* In one episode Frank tricks Dee and Dennis into digging up the corpse of their deceased mother. If you've recently lost someone close to you, especially a parent, I highly recommend skipping the episode 'Charlie's Mom Has Cancer'

In season 9’s “Mac Day” Mac is reported to have “made a little poopie in his pants” after being threatened at potential knife point. Rescued thanks to Country Mac’s sharp ocular pat-down.

No cutting or anything but a lot of self destructive behavior, most notably one of the main characters goes often days or even weeks without eating. After getting medicated for BPD he hasn't mentioned it almoat ever.

Throughout season 7 Mac is shown overeating frequently and it is later revealed he has body dysmorphia and gains and loses weight unhealthily quickly. Dennis starves himself in season 2 ep 7 "The Gang Exploits a Miracle" Dennis reveals he frequently skips meals and exercises excessively in season 7 episode 1 "Franks Pretty Woman" Mac mentions starving himself in season 6 ep 11"The Gang Gets Stranded in the Woods" Dee mentions starving herself in season 10 ep 8 "The Gang Goes on Family Fight" and later faints because of this.

Abortions are referenced sometimes in a comedic context (ex. Charlie's mom tried to abort him but it "didn't take"). There is nothing graphic and the emotional weight of the subject isn't covered.

Two of the main characters discover their grandfather is a n**i and although he’s only in two episodes, he uses slurs towards both Jewish and black people and forced his grandchildren to listen to n**i public speakers and salute as young children. A reoccurring character is constantly called a Jew in a slightly offensive context, despite him repeatedly saying he’s not Jewish.

The characters sometimes call a trans woman (Carmen) a man and she has a very visible bulge in the first seasons which is treated as a joke. But definitely not the most transphobic depiction of trans women that I have seen. There is also a lot of jokes about Dennis wearing make up or women's clothes. In "Aluminum Monster Vs Fatty McGoo" Dennis weara a dress and heavy make up to prove a point and this is treated as a joke. Though I as a trans person didn't find any of the jokes involving Dennis offensive.

Transphobic slurs are used in episodes with Carmen, primarily season 1 ep 4 "Charlie has cancer", season 2 ep 10 "Mac is a serial killer" and season 6 ep 1 "Mac fights gay marriage"

Dennis has had sex with 18-year-olds when he has been over 40. Dee also (accidentally) had sex with a high schooler while she was over 40. Frank often has sex with ypung prostitutes while he is about 70. One of the main characters also had sex with an adult while he was 14 if that counts.

The show has not ended yet but I highly doubt that it will. The show is a comedy but it is pretty dark so some episodes have kinda sad endings, especially for side characters.
