* The movie ''WesternAnimation/TheAristocats'' has a Paris woman deciding to allow the Cats to inherit her estate, with her butler intending to off the cats before she dies so he could acquire the inheritance. And, ironically enough, that turned out to be completely pointless: if he had listened to the ''whole'' will, he would've heard that upon the Paris woman's death, the butler was to be ''appointed the cats' caretaker'', so he actually would've (sort of) gotten the money ''anyway'' if he'd just left the cats alone.

* In ''VideoGame/CrusaderKings II'', if your character has the Lunatic trait, you can get a random event where you decide to appoint your horse as your chancellor. Previously, this just dismissed the current chancellor and left the position vacant, but a recent patch makes the event generate an actual horse character to fill the position. Naturally, someone took it to the [[UpToEleven logical extreme]] and did...[[BestialityIsDepraved certain things]] in order to [[https://imgur.com/a/K1utf make a horse the ruler of the restored Roman Empire]].

** A past Patrician of Ankh-Morpork (the aptly named 'Mad Lord Snapcase', though most Patricians had names like that) appointed his horse as a city councilor, though it is pointed out that it wasn't a ''bad'' councilor compared to some of the others, which included: a vase, a heap of sand, and three people who had been beheaded.

* In one episode of ''Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir'', there is a rather loopy corporate executive who took investment advice from his dog (There was mention of him once trying to buy-out General Motors because the dog chased a Buick). By the time of the episode, Sparky the dog had been dead for months - but his owner had him stuffed and mounted in his office and ''still'' took investment advice from it.

[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tama_%28cat%29 Tama the cat]] was a station master in Japan from 2007 until her death in 2015. The stations on the Kishigawa Line had all been destaffed as a cost-cutting measure, with station masters being selected from local business owners. Tama was selected from a number of cats being cared for by passengers and Kishi Station's manager, Toshiko Koyama. She had several cat assistants and a deputy, Nitama, who took up the role of station master after Tama's death.
