Characters face perilous situations, including shipwreck and pirate attacks. A character is killed, and the deaths of serval others are implied. A character suffering from seasickness vomits. Scary looking cats hunt and try to harm other characters: they are also abusive to each other. Skeletons of dead animals are shown. Cannibalism, walking the plank, and the gallows are mentioned.

Sexual Content: Mild sexual innuendo occurs. A pregnant cat shows off her large belly and nipples.

Language: A couple of mild profanities are used.
