With the introduction of the new pet collecting achievements that increased sales of all kinds of pets, now is a good time to review all the related tips.
Today I want to remind you of these two semi-rare pets. I do not farm them but rather keep an eye on the Auction House and buy them when they are selling cheap to flip for more.
Where do they come from? And why are they semi-rare?
Cat Carrier (White Kitten) is sold in Stormwind by the boy named Lil Timmy. The trick here is that he is not in town all the time. He spawns every 2-3 hours, follows a set route around the city and then despawns. Each time he has only one kitten in stock and will happily sell it to you for 60s. For a detailed guide on how to get this pet and for a good laugh check this post on Wowhead.
Parrot Cage (Green Wing Macaw) is dropped by the Defias Pirates in the Deadmines, both normal and heroic, with roughly 2% drop chance and now it also can be found in the Satchel of Exotic Mysteries. Either way it is not the most common pet.
I suggest you check your auction house for these pets from time to time. They come in limited quantities and often people post them for as little as 50g. I managed to sell them for around 400-500g. The price for a kitten maybe a little lower on the Alliance side, but check the Horde auction house and you may find there is none listed there.
Now I will go and get my Winterspring Cub. Somehow I do not have it yet. Have a nice day!
