* CutAndPasteTranslation: Both the original ''Konkeko Monogatari'' and the adaptation ''Milo And Otis'' were cut separately from the huge amount (over 40 hours) of raw footage originally shot. This leads to both of the two versions containing scenes that are exclusive to it and not present in the other. The overall tone as conveyed through the editing, music, and narration is also markedly different between the two versions, with ''Milo and Otis'' coming across as a bit LighterAndSofter compared to the more artsy and dramatic ''Koneko Monogatari.''

* DubNameChange: The original names of the cat and dog are Chatran and Poosky respectively. These names were kept in some of the dubs such as the Norwegian one. In English however, they were named Milo and Otis.

* BigDamnHeroes: Milo just barely escaped from the bear, but he ends up falling into a steep pit that's too deep to climb or jump out of. All he could do is meow and call for help, even though he doesn't think that there's anyone around to hear him. "But someone did..." - cue Otis finally finding Milo and helping his friend out.



* AFriendInNeed: Even though Otis ran off without fully explaining feeling alienated due to being a ThirdWheel when Joyce joined him and Milo, Milo's reaction when he sees Otis again is pure joy, and he readily shares a small haul of fish so that Otis can feed his own family.



* HeterosexualLifePartners

to:

* HeterosexualLifePartnersHeterosexualLifePartners: The titular pair, who are intensely loyal to each other.



* PreciousPuppy: Otis.

to:

* PapaWolf: More of a nuturing variety than a protective one, but when Otis is at his DarkestHour, he imagines the consequences to Sandra and his puppies if he should just give up on hunting for food in the snowstorm. This gives him the HeroicSecondWind needed to outlast it and find food for his family. Also, combining with MamaBear, for all that the seagulls were attacking Milo, they were doing so because Milo ''was'' looking to eat their eggs and young.
* PreciousPuppy: Otis. Later on, [[spoiler: he has three of his own.]]

* ComingOfAgeStory: Milo is born, has a happy childhood, but ends up disobeying his mother and as a consequence leaves home and faces the hardships of the world. After overcoming many dangers and staring death in the face, he finds another cat with whom he falls in love and eventually becomes father to a litter of kittens of his own. Most of this applies to Otis as well, although his reason for leaving home was to rescue Milo.
