In addition to the cat scene, a bird is shot in episode 5 around the 17-minute mark. Death is not shown, but gunshot and cawing are heard.

animal experimentation involving violence late in episode one, more experimentation causing distress/pain to an animal in episode six

Butterflies and fireflies; and there's a firefly close-up in a music video for Imagine Dragons' "Enemy" which is related to the series

In episode 1 they introduce the cat, then off it at the very last scene. TLDR of the last scene, Kid that started the street fight snitches on Vi and the gang. Head bad guy says plans have moved up and has Henchman 1 show him a potion that gives creatures super strength and demonizes them. Then they chuck the cat in with a rat that got fed the potion. Cat dies. If you're sensitive, I'd just read this summary and then skip the entire last scene.

purple vials called the shimmer = fantasy steroids, make people hulk out and over time warps them physically (like huck, shown episode 6) or gives them brain damage (like is shown with decker in episode 6). also addictive.

most prominent in episode six- discussed, and people are shown to be desperate to obtain more of a fantasy drug equivalent

A girl very briefly tortures her father figure in episode 7. Description of the scene, spoilers ahead: He needs to take a medication applied via syringe that she is shown to have helped him with before. Believing he has lied to her, she pokes him twice in the face with it, visibly causing pain. The scene only lasts a minute and the torture aspect is relatively mild, but it could still upset some viewers.

other comment is referring to a character's arm being blasted off in an explosion in episode 3. it is onscreen, just brief and easy to miss. not remotely graphic.

At the very beginning of episode 1 two children see their biological parents die. While the deaths are not explicitly shown, we do see a body. SPOILERS AHEAD: The same children later see their adoptive parents die as well, at the end of episode 3 and episode 9.

sort of. a child talks about missing her favorite toy, which was taken and thrown within sight but unable to be retrieved. another child makes explosive weapons resembling toys, and at one point gets frustrated/upset and damages one.

multiple times, shown most explicitly in three, eight, and nine. discussed throughout the series.

At the end of episode 3 a character kidnaps a young girl but suggests it is to protect her. At the end of episode 6 two main characters are knocked unconscious during a fight and kidnapped by their assailants. About halfway through episode 9 a main character wakes up to find that she and two other characters have been kidnapped and tied to chairs.

no. this is different but perhaps relevant- in one scene, characters travel through an unsanitary sewage/trash (?) area.

a character who struggles with likely ptsd and psychosis traits is violent sometimes. she is portrayed sympathetically. + honestly i’d say she isn’t the only character with mental health issues in the show.

There is a sex scene in episode 5, relatively discreet. No frontal nudity shown, all that is clearly revealed is a man's bare back, but sexual activity is clearly displayed. No view below torso, and scene is interrupted repeatedly as the show switches between two story segments in bursts. Doesn't last very long and as of yet it isn't referenced more than once.

Not a homophobic slur but might be worth noting that Jinx is extremely jealous and upset about Vi and Caitlyn's relationship. It doesn't appear to be for homophobic reasons but because it is a queer relationship it might be hard for some viewers to see.

a character with a physical disability describes himself as a “cr-pple”; it may be seen as a reclaimed use of the term

“cr-pple” is used in self reference by a physically disabled character, and he alludes to facing prejudice.

The one fat kid in the group is shown stuffing a cupcake into his mouth during a heist. Aside from this, fat jokes are scarce.

the enforcers have been shown as aggressive and cruel, or often more passively enabling brutality and inequality. some attempt to change the system from the inside, but are meant with intense resistance including violence from their superiors.

many adult antagonists in the show are willing to physically fight and even kill young children. it’s also mentioned that a young boy was left overnight with a foot stuck in a gutter after he fled police- they saw it and decided to leave him there with no attempt to help. children are manipulated.
