"cat's meat" isn't meat from a cat, it's small chunks of meat on a stick advertised as a portion FOR a cat. Sort of equivalent to a snack today.

Yes and no. A vendor advertises cat meat (in the form of pieces of meat on skewers, not visually identifiable as coming from cats). We don't see any of the cats whose meat is sold.

A lance hits a character's helmet in the face, which dents inwards and is implied to be stuck on the character's head. The character is, however, uninjured, and the head itself is not squished or misshapen.

No one self harms, but the protagonist chooses to do things that get him injured and that aggravate existing injuries.

There is no ableism. A blind character is treated respectfully (not touched without permission/warning, and events are narrated for him when asked).
