Sounds fun. I'll be there.

Would anything in the Dragonkin family count as a dragon? Or only the ones listed?

Any dragonkin family should be fine as long as they're not the mech.

How bout cats? Because technically Cat was supposed to be there for the feast, but rat tricked him.

The Rat and the Cat
A long, long time ago, the Cat and the Rat were the best of friends. They accompanied each other everywhere they went and they shared their food. One day, the Cat learnt that the Jade Emperor was going to elect twelve animals to represent the twelve calendar years, and invited all animals to a party. The Cat suggested to the Rat that both of them should make a presence.

When the day finally arrived, the Cat told the Rat, 'I am going to take a nap so that I will be in my top form. Can you please wake me up when it's time to go to the party?' 'No problem.' the Rat replied, 'Just relax and rest. I will wake you up when the time comes.'

After the Cat fell asleep, the Rat thought to himself, 'I am among the smallest of all animals and I don't stand a chance in making one of the twelve if the Cat will go.' So when the time came, the Rat left on his own without waking up the Cat, and was elected as one of the twelve Zodiac Animals.

When the Cat found out what the Rat had done, he was furious. The two became worst enemies. This is the reason why cats are not one of the twelve animals and they love to chase after rats.

(completely in jest as not part of the current zodiac)

as far as the dragon family of pets, I was going for the ones that really look like dragons, so was trying to exclude Chrominius, death talon whelpguard, untamed hatchling, nether faerie dragon, and sprite darter hatchling. i am open to suggestions or comments though.

Lucky Quillen being modeled on the Chinese Fu dog would be allowed. Rocket Chicken being a mech would not. Same as mechanical Pandaren Dragonling not being allowed as it's a mech even though it technically is a dragon. Sprite Darter, Nether Fairie dragon also dragons but fey dragons not Chinese type models. In some cases exceptions had to be made in order to have pets in the category, such as Horse and Ox. For the most part the challenge is to create a team while doing your best to maintain the theme of Chinese New Year in spirit.

Be sure to check against the list for acceptable pets. If you think one should be included that is not, list it for consideration.

I was planning on using Thundering Serpent Hatchling and/or the Cloud Serpents from Pandaria. I'm assuming they're legal, as they're the same model as Yu-la, as well as the most Chinese-looking dragons in the game.
