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

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.

Are there incestuous relationships?

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.

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.

The ending is somewhat bittersweet/ambiguous. There are serious implications of what may come to pass, but nothing is explicitly shown.

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.

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.

Characters briefly and occasionally discuss or imply “doing it” and sleeping with their partner overnight, but otherwise it is very tame.
