Ok if you roll a BE I can tell you how the system works. You do not have to kill all the cats adn wait for battle pet spawn. Clearing the cats does nothing regardless of what you do the respawn timer is about a minute give or take. Only one battle pet will spawn at a time. Their are cats inside the buildings, ignor them. They will never spawn a Battle pet, not even the one on the second floor on the outside of the balcony. Sit between the buildings and wait for th min map blip to pop up.
Have to agree with those suggesting rolling a BE and just slaughtering ALL the cats in the area right around where you first spawn after creating a new BE (both battle pets and regular critter cats). The re-spawn rate is very fast, like 1 minute, and after a few I finally got my rare! She (don't know why, but in my mind she's a she) even had the siamese cat skin to boot, which is my fave.
Kitty slaughter house!
Got a "blue" Level 20 one in Netherstorm - changes colour - summoned a few times and got all 4 alternate Skins.
I had 3 rares spawn at the Cat Lady in one evening, unfortunatley I killed the first one. I got a SS black and a BB Tiger. I think cats are underated, especially because they are so strong againt wild critters.
So me and "The Cat Lady" had us a good old slumber party in Elwynn Forest!!! After doing 14 pet battles, 45 minutes and no rare, WoW bugged out on me and I got d/c... Bwahaha ---- UPDATE: I played with the login screen for a few more minutes and I got back into the game did like 4 more cat pet battles, and I ended up with a very nice Siamese Lvl 2 RARE!!! Woot. Cat Lady FTW.
Got a rare in Arathi Highlands as a second pet to a Grasslands Cottontail. I also saw it come as an add to almost every pet in the area. It's an awesome pet against critters, the Devour ability is very strong. Good luck!
Just want to add my agreement and recommendation that you go with the single spawn at the cat lady. Quick respawn and it took about 7-10 battles to finally get a rare.
I found a cat on Sunstrider Island, the BE starting area. There are a bunch of just-critter cats running around The Sunspire building, and one turns battleable now and then.
Also, camping the Crazy Cat Lady's house in Elwynn can work; there's usually only a single cat marked for battle, but it respawns after a couple of minutes. I finally got my Rare that way. Cats often show up as secondary in Arathi, but are mostly Poor.
Sunstrider Isle is probably the easiest place to find a cat that can be captured. There are multiple spawns there, and they respawn very quickly if you have to clear them out. However, they also very frequently show up as secondary fights in Arathi and Netherstorm (of all places), so if you're not picky about hunting for 'just the right model', you can grab one at those locations.
I have found approximately 2 cats that can be battled and caught in Elwynn Forrest. they spawn outside the house of Donni Anthania <Crazy Cat Lady>, one in the front and one in the back. The house is located south of Northshire Abby and west of the road.
update: I have caught the light grey stripped on the north and south side of the house and the siamese on the east and west. I have only captured the cornish rex on the east side near the cattle. I have not caught the bombay.
There are 17 different feline beasts with identical movesets. The only difference (battle wise) is the breed. For the 4 cats that have a breed choice, only the Sand Kitten and the Snow Cub cannot be mimicked by any other breed. The Cheetah Cub is the fastest with 390 speed. The most powerful is the Cornish Rex Cat with 341 power. The healthiest is the B/B Snow Cub with 1481 health. The amount of health restored from using Devour increases with power.
I love my Cat. Great fighter, great self-heal, just wish her Health was a bit higher... It's a rare time that I have to heal the team because her health is down, and on her team, she does 90% of the fighting!
Wow, talk about an underrated pet!! Cats have an awesome self-heal, and in fact, it's much better than another of my favorite pets, Chrominius, who only heals for 249. Cats heal for about 444 if you time Devour to kill the mob. I start with Rake, then Claw if the pet isn't low enough to kill with Devour, which hits twice. I frequently find my cat at 100% health at the end of the fight because of its strong heal. (My various cats are S/S)
Netherstorm is in my opinion the best place to pick up a cat of any quality. I can confirm that they spawn with Nether Roach as well as Nether Fledgling. Within about 15 min I found a rare tied to a Nether Roach. Mouse is also a common side spawn with Nether Roach, so I also picked up a lvl 19 Rare to replace my lvl 3 same trip. Good Luck.
Mine was a secondary from a Fledgling Nether Ray at Manaforge Ultris. 2:30 am Shadow Council
Crazy Cat Lady came through for me. Nesingwary. 3:09 server. After 5 pulls of poor quality, there the little blue baby was. :D
Got my rare in Arathi as a second to a grey small frog.
2. Roll a blood elf
Found multiple times in Netherstorm he seems to be a secondary to everything. just keep going farming your nether roaches and rays you should get one fairly quickly
Thank you...:) I took suggestion (below) about 'Crazy Cat Lady' and her one spawning cat. It worked! On my server there are nada "Fledgling Nether Rays" to be had in the area, so no "Cat" either (and I thought the elusive Tanaris Sand Kitten was a pain)...lol Anyway, as stated, there is (1) respawning Cat, about every 90 sec, so no wait time. He is lvl 1-3. Mostly greys, then to white, green then blue. Got RARE on seventh pull. Grt plc 2 lv ur 1's.
