Whiskers the Rat
Binds when picked up
Use: Teaches you how to summon this companion.
Grooms face, sniffs air, and wanders around. Also flips over and plays dead (rare).
This pet is chosen among four vanity pets as a reward after completing a chain of Children's Week quests. These quests may be accessed by characters level 10+. See the Guide to Children's Week for a detailed walkthrough of this chain. Other rewards for the final quest include Mr. Wiggles, Speedy, and Scooter the Snail. Collecting all four pets on the same character is possible (over the course of four years) since the quests are repeatable each year.
I pity Whiskers the rat. Everyone always picks Speedy or Mr. Wiggles. No one ever goes for Whiskers. Hmmm… *ponders* Whiskers always gets the shaft and the alley near the Stormwind auction house is constantly littered with white rat carcasses. Do people who play Warcraft just hate white rats? I should fund a study…
