* On ''Series/{{Charmed}}'' the sisters had a cat named Kit, but after the first season or so the studio no longer had the animal. They covered with green screens and stock footage, but eventually stopped. Years later Kit returns [[spoiler:as a human, having been rewarded for her work as the sisters' familiar]].
* On ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', Willow and Tara got a kitten, who was only seen in three episodes. An off-hand comment much later on suggests that this kitten was killed off-screen by an accident.
--> '''Dawn:''' I told you, I donít leave crossbows around all willy-nilly...not since that time with Miss Kitty Fantastico.
* Joey and Chandler's duck and chicken from ''Series/{{Friends}}''. In the series finale, it is implied that they died and Joey was told that they were "sent to a farm."

* On ''WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' Max at one point admits that everything about the the wizarding world is true, "except for the Dragon Dog! I have no idea what happened to him!" The episode the dragon dog appears the Russos jump through some serious hoops to keep that little puppy-dragon. And then he disappears. And then all we get is Max's lampshade hanging.
* {{Averted}} in ''SomethingPositive:'' WordOfGod says that the original plan was that Davan would (reluctantly) adopt Choo-Choo Bear, who would then disappear for years until a dark BrickJoke where they discover his corpse behind the sofa or something. Perhaps due to his [[EnsembleDarkhorse popularity]], he's remained a part of the cast, even though he should be pushing forty by now.
* ''InvaderZim'' has a variant: in one of his [[HandsOffParenting possibly-prerecorded messages]] to his children, [[ReluctantMadScientist Professor Membrane]] reminds them to feed the dog. This reminds the pair that hey, they used to have a dog, didn't they? and they take a minute to look around in confusion. The viewers, however, never heard of it before.
* ''SouthPark'' pets (like Stan's dog Sparky or Cartman's cat Mr. Kitty) have a tendency to disappear for whole seasons at a time, but reappear if needed for a plotline or joke.

* In the TomClancy novel ''[[Literature/JackRyan Patriot Games]]'', Jack got his daughter a Labrador named Ernie. It does not appear in any later book, though a comment in ''Red Rabbit'', the next book in chronological (If not publication) order, implied that the dog stayed in America when the Ryan family moved to London for a year or so. No explanation is given for why they aren't reunited with the dog when they moved back to Annapolis.
