In one of my luckiest days on record I saw snows in Northrend and obtained an Arctic Fox Kit. I did catch-and-release until I found a rare. I then teleported to Tanaris on a whim and it was a sandstorm. The first I'd ever seen. I went over and sure enough there was a Silithid Hatchling. The first I tried to catch was a rare. Why is it that I had such astounding fortune yet feel so empty inside?

What if this was a mechanism by which certain pets could be used to obtain their mount equivalents? A rare circumstance in which your cute little pet could grow up into a mount. Of course you could choose not to let it grow and keep your cute little pet, but if you had two of them you could let one grow and have a fun mount.
You're never too old to enjoy gaming. I'm 40 and am an avid pet collector. My parents are in their 70s and love gaming too (Minecraft currently).
