Status Update (1)
Last TCG pet gotten today with a lucky find of a Tuskarr Kite! Will be picking up the Hatchling as soon as I can, but for now, I believe I have every pet that I can possibly get at all whatsoever (without having to pay stupid prices for ebay collector's editions or unspent plushie pets).

I *could* be wrong, but I am also suspecting pet XP may have been raised. Where at full buff, it took three battles with Squirt for level 25 before (even during Pet weekend), it's only taking 2 now. Battle 1 to level 19, 2 to 25.
Feel free to correct my memory on how much XP pets get from Squirt during a weekend if I'm wrong; I wouldn't want to get people's hopes up. However, nearly 14k pet XP, even during a pet weekend, definitely seems like more than she used to give!
Realized my comment was in error; I was in the wrong zone. It's no wonder I couldn't find any. :)
While the warning is that 'players must be level 110 to enter Suramar', I was able to come here at level 100. Mind you, all the enemies are level 110 (other than a few scaling rares) so expect to get your butt handed to you. However, if you're an obsessive collector the way I am, you can come and get these early.
Just be aware that you're essentially walking into an area completely filled with level 110 nerubians, including several elites. Being level 110 is probably the safest way to do it.

While they are not interactable to attack, if you click on them as you would a battle pet (right click) you're able to battle them normally.
Also, these sometimes spawn in groups of two and three. If they do, and you leave one of the group up, then when the second (or second and third) respawn (taking a couple minutes or so), they will *always* respawn as battle pets, thus allowing for constant grinding of them until you get your rare fawn.
These pets are found as part of 'primary battles' in the Dalaran Sewers. Catching one might be difficult, as it's possible to get attacked while you're fighting *and* they can be killed by other people. Best to make sure you do your battling when the guards are up, or even better, right after you have gotten a bodyguard (to make sure you have the maximum amount of time).
Fighting a Blind Rat group gives 75 Sightless Eyes in addition to te usual XP and potential pet capture, for the record
Mine was uncommon instead of rare. I suspect that they're having the 'random rarity' issue with these.
This creature apparently drops from the 'Stolen Present' gained from the Christmas daily: 'You're A Mean One'.
Be warned: the 'Frost Shock' ability, while the tooltip describes it as 'chilling' the enemy, does *NOT* apply the 'Chilled' status.
Compared to other rabbits, these are about half to a third the size. They are a tiny little speck on the screen, and at least to me, that makes them just utterly *adorable*.For fans of cute, I highly suggest these.
These pets spawn only on a Sunday, between 9 and 11PM server time. They spawn right at the beginning of the festival (just after 9 PM), and I have been hanging around for a half hour now, and haven't seen another spawn yet. It's possible these are like the Shadeling, and only spawn in a single 'cluster' at once.
The festival is held on Turtle Beach, which is due east of The Incursion. You'll know you're there when you find the statue of Liu Lang.
EDITED: Because apparently I can't tell 'west' from 'east'
At the moment, this pet is bugged, and doesn't show toward the achievement. However, it is also not yet needed for the achievement: I have the Northrend achievement as we speak.
These can show up as secondaries to almost anything in the zone. On my hunt for the elusive rare, I have located spawns with the primaries of Maggot, Fjord Rat, Rat, Rabbit, and Fjord Worg Pup. And that's only so far. I expect they can join as part of almost anything.
Since Larva share spawns with several other critters (spiders and rats in particular), you may have to kill or battle critters in order to make Larva spawn for you. Even worse, you may have to do it until a *capturable* one spawns: they are not universally catchable.
Larva will also show up in Ghostlands as a 'secondary battler' in combats. If you are unable to find one as part of a primary battle, then farm level 5 creatures in the area and a larva may show up as backup.
Unlike many of the 'special zone pets', King Snakes can and will show up as secondary critters in pet battles in the zone. Therefore, if you are having trouble finding a King Snake, you may want to fight some of the others and see if one will join them.
Unlike many of the 'special zone pets', the Blighthawk can and will appear as a secondary battler to other combatants in the zone. I actually caught my rare Blighthawk in a fight with a black rat in and around the Anderhol area. So if you can't find an 'actual' Blighthawk to try, farm the black rats.
I was unable to train this pet because of the same 'requires' bug. However, ticketing a GM and explaining the situation let me get the companion 'trained' to me. Therefore, if you're being bitten by this bug, opening a ticket is probably your best chance until Blizzard fixes this bug.
There has been a bug with both the worgen and Pandaren pets, with new characters being unable to train the pet because they were unable to obtain 'Pet Training'. Not sure if Goblins have the same problem, but I would assume so. However, ticketing a GM and explaining the situation let me get the Pandaren's companion 'trained' to me. Therefore, if you're being bitten by this bug, opening a ticket is probably your best chance until Blizzard fixes this bug.

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.
