Traumatized me as a 9 year old who's grandmother had just died

If a child has been touched by real death in the family, or of a pet, this film could be devastating. There are very confusing messages about faith/religion. And the adults don't act responsibly in many of the segments of the movie. I was 9 years old when I first saw it in the theater and was traumatized by the death of the cat, and confused by it's supposed trip to cat heaven. I had just lost my grandmother to cancer.

This title has:

Too much violence
not rated for age

WHAT?! Only 3 stars????

This is a Disney classic! I still like to watch it (for some fun performances) and I don't even like cats!!!
