Both involve the main character being whisked away into another world where they meet other people. Both include kings that rule the land they're taken to, royal advisers, and mischievous characters of some-sort (and crows lol). Both have the main character face some difficult situation that they resolve with the help of friends.
In both there are elements of fantasy but very humanized. In Arrietty by the inclusion in the human world of small creatures, while Nako no Ongaeshi the world of cats is quite humanized.
While the character design is quite different, the movements (running style, etc.) is typical of Ghibli.
Also, both have a small dose of action and drama that gives best value to the work.
I don't know how to explain, but the feelings after you watched these movies are somehow resemble each other, so... I'm sure it won't be just a waste of time, if you'll watch it. Actually, The Cat Returns is more interesting.
