Thank you to my wonderful fiancé, Fagan, for giving me Brightpaw for Christmas! :)
Of the "realistically" obtainable pets, I'm now only missing the Fetish Shaman from the Diablo CE. After that, it's going to take a lotto win to get the rest (Mini Tyrael, I'm looking at you!).
All 752 pets now rare and at level 25!

I concur, fishing the pools is definately faster if you can do when the area is quiet or it's a low pop realm. The raft from Nat Pagle definately comes in handy here.
This pet IS still available, as of November 2014! I added the code to my Battlenet account today and when I logged in BOTH the Netherwhelp and Lurky were waiting in my mailbox. It looks like they have finally fully automated it so no more having to post things to France.
After months of having an alt camped on my main server, I gave up and rolled a DK on a Spanish RPPVP realm, leveled to 58, and got her to Felwood. I ran her up to the minfernal place, thinking to camp her next to one of the spawn points . . . and there was already a minfernal up!! It was a common but I'm ecstatic anyway! (This was at approx midday)
Tol Barad - Rustberg Village is definately the place to go. After having no luck in STV I headed off there and found loads. The mobs are easy to kill at level 90 and there are a fair few rats about and they respawn pretty fast too. Got a rare on my second circut of the village.
This is quite possibly one of the hardest rares I've hunted so far. The tips about them being mostly in the gnoll camps is totally correct and that is where I eventually found a rare one (the camp near the FP). Got a very few as secondaries but they were all poor.
Went looking for these tonight and found one, just one, in Paoquan Hollow, nearish the wall. He was an uncommon so he'll do for now.
Giavana, I have noticed that too and it still hasn't been removed so I live in hope that there might be a similar pet available to us at some point.
Went there early evening and there were loads, at least 9 showing on my mini map at any one time. 3rd one I captured was a rare so they are out there. Good luck guys!
Took a swing by the Azureload Mine at about 2am local time and there were a couple of people running around killing every adult bear in sight. It seemed to do the trick though as a few respawned with cubs and I caught 2 commons before getting a rare. Good luck guys!
When I went hunting for this I only found them as secondary battle pets. Eventually found a rare tag-teamed with a scorpion near Gadgetzan. Just to back up a previous comment, they did seem to be more commonly teamed with the sea gulls.
