This pet was formerly known as 'Maine Coon'. Prior to The Shattering, this pet could only be looted by horde as they dropped from the Dalaran Spellscribe, a rare mob that was friendly to alliance. Horde also had a chance of obtaining it from a Dalaran Shield Guard, Dalaran Theurgist, and Dalaran Summoner in the Alterac Mountains. These mobs have since been removed.

After Patch 4.0.3, the Black Tabby was relocated to Hillsbrad Foothills as a zone drop, making it more accessible for alliance.

If Stinker the skunk is nearby, he will fall in love with the Black Tabby and chase it around.

I remember creating a Horde Character just so I could catch this guy. Only one fellow dropped him who spawned every 6 hours or so in 3 different spots. If you killed him the drop chance was extremely low. I caught a few and sold in AH. My Bank Alt accidentally activated one when he went to sell it in AH. This gave me 2 in my pet list when Pet Battles became active Years later. The Cat was one of the first I brought to Level 25 and upgraded from Uncommon to Rare. Love it and the story I have.

Must have got lucky I killed around 20 or so Infected Sludge Guards they respawn quickly so may make the grind easier. Thankfully the RNG gods where kind to me

I have been farming the Black Tabby cat for the past month, It finally dropped off a horse this morning right around Tarren Mill. I killed all the animals in the area, as well as the Ogres in the top part but I didnt not farm the murlocks. I could never find it listed on the AH so I had to farm it. Hope this helps and good luck!!!

I read how hard it was to get this cat on these forums.  I then went to try and got it on my first attempt! All I did was open the AH and drop 10K.  Easy!  (Seems to be steady at 10K on my server - have not seen if for less)

After about a week and a half and over 4000 kills still no Black Tabby Cat. While farming for him I ran across a sympathetic herb farmer, and he agreed to trade him to me for peddlefeet and a humanoid stone. I had an extra one anyway, so man what a relief.

 

The real drop rate must be .001. Its insane.

Looking for this kitty is the very definition of insanity.

 

During the months I farmed, I focused on zombies, Gnolls and horses.

The farm zombies at 39,60 respawn instantly and are clustered. Very efficent.

Gnolls and horses both respawn almost as fast, but are more spread out. Less efficient, but a nice change of scenery.

 

I like to keep my bags FULL for mass-killings so auto loot only takes the MONEY from each kill. I can quickly see whether or not there's a kitty and keep moving.

farmed for 2 weeks. trying to get collect 20 felines to get the title "crazy cat lady" finally droped yesterday. dont even know from what i stopped looking till my bags were full. farmed some murlocks but i found it more benifical to farm the snow yetis and turtles because you can at least get skins and mine along the way, so u make some money while grinding. also killed wild horses and stags and bears and an occasional spider. whew. now, back to it to get one for my husband! :)

I wanted to farm it, I really did, but geez most of the mobs are so far apart looting them all was such a pain.

 

 

Finally ended up buying it in the AH for about 6.5k. Now they're going for about 10k so I guess I still...kind of lucked out.

1727 mobs and counting.... not really lucky yet =(

 

Im focussing my farm on the Gnolls and some wild horses, every now and then I fly around killing random mobs. Maybe Im doing something wrong..

Gave up after 5000+ kills, found it on the AH for 2k gold, bought it.

This little guy is especially special to me, as he was actually a Christmas gift from my brother. Back in Cataclysm, I had been farming Hillsbrad Foothills for quite a while trying to get it to drop, but with no luck. On Christmas morning, I checked my mail only to see a wrapped gift from my brother's character. I opened it, in which I found the cute little kitty I had so sought after, along with the message "You finally wanted it enough. Merry Christmas." I was so happy. Such a nice gift. :)

I'm guessing this pet has become quite rare, as mine just sold on the AH for 8000g....

Just found pet in my bag, was mining for tin and killed the ogres in the cave, after about a dozen, noticed the pet had dropped. Was thinking of killing the horses for this but lucked out.

Finally found this cute little kitty after several hours of farming. Farmed Murlocs for 2 hours with no luck, then decided to farm the wild horses between Tarren Mill and Durnholde Keep down at the river. Dropped from the 3rd Wild Horse I killed.

Oh my lord is all I can say about this grind..My rarity addon said 15:42 hours and 9987 mobs killed with percentage 84% however before I got that addon I already had 3500 on killtrack.

Anyway my main mobs were murlocs and gnolls and I would swing around to look for the 8 horse pack. On way back to the gnolls  I said to there is a lonely horse grazing,swoop down and killed And BANG thing popped up:  found cat carrier.  I immediately learned and upgraded to rare...god he deserves it
