From the movie’s Twitter: “It wasn’t in the movie, but Scott did feed Sprinkles by tossing a fistful of dry food through the window every day until Oscar was released. However the cat escaped the 1st day and the food just piled up for 6 months”

There's no on-screen self harm, but the main character talks about how he enjoys the pain from tattoos, and states that he will definitely intentionally hurt himself someday.

Really brief, 5 minutes in after everyone stops laughing about Scott's tattoo. Right before, he motions to a girl in a "do you wanna get out of here" way and she nods.
