Ben the rat is often mistreated but he's not portrayed as being sad very much more angry and defiant.

The other comment is about the remake from 2003. In the original 1971 film, the cat is simply abandoned with a stranger and never seen again.

Willard is very likely autistic and mistreated, partially because of his autism. However this movie was made in the 1970s so it's not like they actually ever say that he's autistic. He's just seen as a weirdo in general.

No humans drown, but rats are drowned. We don't see the animals themselves, but there are extended shots of the character holding them underwater.
