I followed many of the tips here and finally got my rare. The key is to kill the Plainsland Cheetahs that spawn under the trees who don't have cubs with them. The new ones that spawn will most likely have cubs, and continue to have cubs at approx 5 min intervals. I marked the ones that did with world markers so I wouldn't kill them. It took me about an hour to get a rare, but there were PLENTY of uncommons.

Found this little beauty SE of Crossroads on my way to Ratchet around 1:00am (too excited to remember to write down exact time/location-sorry) under a tree with a whole pride of lions! They must have adopted her because I could not find her mother anywhere. First rare pet I found and didn't even know battle pets had ratings other than poor until her. Beacause of this little cub I found WarcraftPets.com in order to figure out what rare means in pet lingo. I owe her so much.

They are all around the zone and they are usually 100% of the time with an adult and under a tree (big yellowish trees), never did I ever find one out in the open or by itself.

 

I found a few north of the zone, but most of them was south half of the zone on both sides, if you need to spawn some you really need to KILL the adult and they can spawn back with the pet. I found plenty of uncommon but no rares, so good luck on you hunt!

I noticed there is one area in particular that seems to spawn the Cheetah Cub a lot.  If you look for the troll, quest giver Kala'ma, the tree he is at seems to spawn them all the time.  I sat around this tree killing other wild pets in the area and watched as that tree spawned 10+ Cheetah Cubs, including one rare that I caught. Good luck to any interested in catching this pet.

Read on another message board that they spawn under trees with "their mother."  This helped a lot in finding them.  I found about 6-7 poors before I found a rare.  Found it south of the Staganat Oasis just south of the building shown on the map.  (on Hellscream at about 12:20 AM)

These beauties are awesome battle pets too! Cats are very underrated and  have an awesome self-heal, and it's better than another favorite pet, 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)

Make a rough loop of all the shady trees close to Xroads and kill the mother/adult cheetahs. The cubs will spawn with the mother what looks like 2/3s the time. Took less the three for a uncommon and less the 15 for a rare.

These guys do spawn with their parent mobs however these can be under almost any of the trees in the northern barrens not just by the river.

Another pet that has Mechanical disadvantage. Use a pet that seems reliable. Yes of course your Lil' Smokey has been your friend since Vanilla time. Choose something more reliable. Cheetahs spawn near the Fury River, so follow the river on both sides and use macro /target Cheetah Cub if still unsuccessful start clearing nearby mobs, They spawn by their moms which is quite convient b/c they are cubs  :) Good luck Happy Hunting!

These playful feline cubs practice their hunting skills by stalking each other through the Barrens.
