Before the beginning of the story, the main character (a cat)'s grandfather dies. He is mentioned several times. In addition to this, another character who is a cat dies, but their death is also only spoken about.

within the technical sense that all the characters are anthropomorphic animals, several characters discuss past experiences with abuse

A cockroach crawls around a severed arm in one scene. Since the art is all storybook style it's not very graphic.

An unknown character that is an animal dies and it's severed arm is found on the ground. However, because the style of the game is very cartoonish it's not graphic and doesn't include blood or gore

Kiiind of? You can kill a cockroach with a stick, plus you see the severed arm of an unnamed character. ETA: Forgot about the graveyard scene where you unearth Little Joe. You see his rotting corpse. It's cartoonish and not overly realistic, but it is a jumpscare. Don't go with Bea to the graveyard if it bothers you.

There is a constellation of a snake during an optional part where you watch stars with the man on top of the roof. It doesn't move or anything and it is a very cartoon-esque snake rather than a realistic lifelike one.

Yes, it's only mentioned though- at a party, one of the characters mentions that her dad had to stop drinking because he was a danger to her and her mother.

Near the end of the game, the main characters witness somebody being tortured by having their legs snapped in two. It's not very graphic and it's only shown in silhouette.

Shortly after the party in the woods, it is revealed that one of the major character's mother is dead. Later in the game, she visits her grave, but this may be an optional path. Can't remember.

There is much discussion of the possibility of ghosts being real, as well as a constant menacing presence after Harfest that the characters deem a ghost. When they hunt for it, they experience many seemingly supernatural events that they believe are spiritual in nature. In a different setting, the benevolent ghost of a deceased character may be seen sitting quietly with a living relative. The two never interact and only the viewer can see the ghost.

there are a few moments where a mysterious figure appears suddenly with a music cue. while not technically a jumpscare, these scenes are usually very tense, and can definitely startle.

Quite the opposite. The only cop in the game is routinely made fun of, and Mae writes ACAB in her journal.

Briefly, Mei's family visits her in her hospital bed after she is injured running away from cultists, thought the whole scene is confused, shifts locations, and might only be a hallucination.

Self harm is not directly mentioned. However, Angus has one line that could possibly be interpreted as a reference to him self harming in the past

It's implied that a side character dies by suicide, he states he's going home to his family but has no family to go home to. It's never called a suicide by characters in the game, but the implication is very heavy.

in a few scenes when mae is shown dissociating, the “camera” warps and can be unsettling. in the scene where mae is running through the woods, the “camera” can shake when jumps are missed.

Okay, this one's actually kind of tricky. Bea flippantly refers to Gregg as bipolar in a way that resembles how people often use "bipolar" as an insult. But later on, Gregg does show symptoms of bipolar disorder, and the narrative treats it respectfully. Bea's comment is never addressed again.

While there are no homophobic slurs said, when hanging out with gregg, whos canonically gay, the first section will be when stealing with him accompanied with steve, who calls both gregg (and mae) ladies, which can be classified as derogatory towards gay men.

No, nobody is misgendered. The only trans character is always referred to with her correct pronouns. The site mods really need to do something about people raiding the site.

A severed arm is shown but is not substantially bloody. Two characters have a knife fight which leads to them pricking each others' hands, but not much beyond that.
