* 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.

* 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.

-->'''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.

to:

* 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.

* In ''Series/GilmoreGirls'', all of Lorelai Gilmore's pets - a least until she adopts the dog Paul Anka in season 6, have died. It's a running gag, to the point where the town's people attempt to stop the dog shelter worker from giving the dog to Lorelai.

* Kagura in ''Manga/{{Gintama}}''. Her enthusiasm combined with her incredible strength has killed her pets in the past. Fortunately [[BigFriendlyDog Sadaharu]] is huge enough and strong enough to survive.
