(At 22:56 - 23:20) When Shizuku first follows Muta the cat into Mr.Nishi's antique shop. Just as Shizuku watches Muta enter the shop - we are shown a golden pig statue sitting on the ground being used as a door stop to hold the shop door open, you can see that it's head is angled so that it is pointed/looking to it's right (to the left from our perspective.) But in the next scene we see that the Pig's head is not angled to either side at all - and is instead shown looking straight ahead. See more
When the afternoon air currents mix, we can even touch the stars without fear!
During the credits we see people walk by the bridge. The "stray" cat (the one with many names) walks by the bridge as well.
