Added DiffLines:

* Milo's river adventure in the box takes a drastic turn when he goes down a waterfall. It gets even worse when night falls. The poor cat is all alone, far from home, he has no idea where Otis is and he hears all kinds of scary sounds from the forest.
* The encounters with the bear.
* Milo rescuing a little piglet from getting stuck in a bramble bush, despite the fact they are being watched by screech owls.


Added DiffLines:

* Otis nearly freezing to death while looking for food for Sandra and their puppies.


* The accusations of animal abuse against the film. [[NightmareRetardant However]], a behind-the-scenes feature included on the Japanese DVD shows that all scenes were in fact handled with great care[[note]]notably, the scene where Milo is limping was created not by breaking the animal's leg but by injecting its paw with a mild anesthetic[[/note]], so contrary to the rumour, NoAnimalsWereHarmed in the film's production. Moreover, several Japanese animal welfare organizations such as the JSPCA had a hand in the production and the film's director himself was a zoologist and owned most of the animals seen in the film, so if any of them died under his watch, he would have been just as devastated as the audience.
** Moreover, they couldn't have the "No animals were harmed" disclaimer because at least one live fish was dragged around and chewed on by other animals and a mouse was caught by an owl.
** There is also [[UnfortunateImplications an element of racism to the allegations]], as they essentially imply that the Japanese have so little regard for animal welfare that they'd be willing to kill kittens just for a few scenes in a children's film.

* What we know as "The Adventures Of Milo and Otis" is basically a redub and recut of Japanese footage. The Japanese, unlike the Americans or the English, appear to be not nearly as squeamish about animal cruelty or violence [[ValuesDissonance at least back then, anyway]]... The scene mentioned above? Guess how they filmed the part where the cat falls off a cliff. The scene where the bear and the pug play lightly in the water? What they didn't show is the Japanese footage where the bear is actually attacking and the pug is screaming for help. At one point, the kitten playing Milo limps around - and there have been statements that it is because the Japanese director actually broke its paw. Notice how, at the end of the film, where the reassuring message saying "no animals were harmed" is supposed to be, there is in its place a blurb saying that the filmmakers had the "utmost concern" for the animals' well-being. Make of that what you will.
