Added DiffLines:

* ShoutOut: A bar in the city serves milk instead of alcohol, possibly a reference to ''Literature/AClockworkOrange.''


Added DiffLines:

* StockAnimalDiet: During the opening shots of the city, a neon sign can be seen that reads "The Milk Bar". Quite an appropriate choice for a city full of anthropomorphic cats.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:
