* Elmira in ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', though it's more [[AndCallHimGeorge chronic abuse]] than negligent killing... she is such a terror that when her dead pets returned to life to get revenge on a Halloween episode short, her attempts to 'take care' and 'play' with them (which tears them apart instead--they were ''very'' rotten corpses) makes them race back to their graves while they're still (relatively) intact.

A character whose pet, unfortunately, has met an untimely end. [[EnemyToAllLivingThings Just like the last one]]. [[AnimalsHateHim And the one before that]], and the one before that... Whether it's a [[AndCallHimGeorge propensity for overly-tight hugs]], [[InHarmsWay frequent life-threatening hijinks]], [[ArtisticLicenseAnimalCare complete cluelessness about pets' needs]], or [[SerialKiller something]] [[{{Sadist}} else]] [[https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoosadism entirely]], this person should ''not'' be allowed to own animals. Period.

** In [=FairlyOddPet=] he was for sure a bad pet owner. He took his pet snail to a salt factory and it died.
* In the ScrewySquirrel cartoon "Lonesome Lenny", a big dopey dog named Lenny keeps accidentally killing his companions. Whenever one of them would die, he would say, "[[AndCallHimGeorge You know, I had a little friend once]], [[PleaseWakeUp but he don't move no more]]". This is an unsubtle ShoutOut to ''Of Mice And Men'', as mentioned above.
** This by the way was the [[KilledOffForReal last]] Screwy Squirrel cartoon.

* While not a killer, Unikitty in ''WesternAnimation/{{Unikitty}}'' is so focused on the "fun" of having a pet, that she loses track of them, to the point of permanently losing them and moving onto the next pet. The castle even has a "Hall of Lost Pets" memorial hall, with pictures of all the pets Unikitty has lost, including a planted Venus flytrap.

*According to the description of an earlier panel for ''Webcomic/KillLaKillAU'', Houka is this, however, it's because he didn't do what Ragyo says and put his dogs in the backyard, thus she accidentally runs them over. This happened to such an extent that he names his dogs numbers. [[https://akaichounokoe.deviantart.com/art/Kill-la-Kill-AU-XVII-Memory-Wall-467534325]]

*Implied to be the case with Brittany's little brother from ''WesternAnimation/{{Daria}}, as, according to one episode, he's the reason they don't bother to name their pets anymore.

* Darla Sherman from ''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo''.''WesternAnimation/FindingNemo'' doesn't know how to take care of her pets and kills them. She almost kills Nemo by shaking his bag.
* ComicBook/HarleyQuinn is this way in ''WesternAnimation/BatmanAndHarleyQuinn''. Her dog got lost, she killed her hamster, and she killed her 'pet' plant as well.

Oddly, this trope can be played for laughs, fear, creepiness or tragedy depending on the work.

* In ''Fanfic/HarryPotterAndTheMethodsOfRationality'', Harry explains to [=McGonagall=] why he'd rather pay for his mail than buy an owl, or any familiar for that matter: "I had a pet rock once. [[EpicFail It died]]." It's later made clear that this wasn't a joke, but something that ''actually happened'', and at the very end of the story it's revealed that [[spoiler:''Dumbledore killed it'', and he doesn't even know why other than "BecauseDestinySaysSo".]]

-->'''Sam:''' I know it looks bad, but we've just had so many pets over the years. Besides, a lot of these were fish.

* Invoked in ''HarvestMoon'', especially ''Save the Homeland'' and ''Wonderful Life'' where the games strictly keep track of your dead pets. The more animals die in your farm, the more people will hate you.
