Patch 1.11.1 | Posted: April 1, 2007

This pet was formerly known as 'Maine Coon'. Prior to The Shattering, this pet could only be looted by horde as they dropped from the Dalaran Spellscribe, a rare mob that was friendly to alliance. Horde also had a chance of obtaining it from a Dalaran Shield Guard, Dalaran Theurgist, and Dalaran Summoner in the Alterac Mountains. These mobs have since been removed.

After Patch 4.0.3, the Black Tabby was relocated to Hillsbrad Foothills as a zone drop, making it more accessible for alliance.

If Stinker the skunk is nearby, he will fall in love with the Black Tabby and chase it around.

Just got mine by farming Storm Pike Engineers at 'Gavins Naze'  --  http://www.wowhead.com/npc=49116/stormpike-engineer 

 

They have a fast respawn rate (about 25-30s secs) so you can just run around, and in between the siege/tank things that the engineers are working on. It took me about 850 kills for mine to drop. 

 

From reading comments below im thinking i have been incredibly lucky to have it drop so quickly. Farmed for 60-90 mins.

Started farming at 3:00 AM EST (it's the best time as from experience the chance you'll see another player is low) I got it on my 3,731st kill. It took me about 3 hours of killing. But the grind wasn't terrible.

Of the 17 cat types within this moveset, this is the only option for the HP breed.

TThank you guys! I've found mine on te beach, so happy with BTC. Looting all those murlocs did also give a lot of 'thick murloc scale'. Sells pretty good on the AH.

It took me almost 3 hours of slaughtering everything at Gavin's but I got mine. Woohoo! :D 

 

Thank you for all the tips, they really helped a lot. :D

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 decided to start farming this so I headed over to hillsbrad. Thought this was a zonewide drop but rarity only counts the humanoids and wild cats....hmmmm.

I would suspect it would depend on your class's AOE ability, but the Engineers up at Gavin's Naze (the ones working on the seige vehicles) have a ridiculously fast respawn rate and there are about 20 of them.  A couple hours of that, I got the Black Tabby Cat.  3314 kills.  I know that's a bit of a lucky percentage drop for this, but mowing through these engineers is the way to go for farming this pet.

I have to thank Breanni for putting this up at the black market auction house. I just camped at the BMAH in Nagrand for hours so I can outbid others right away and got this for just a little above 4,000 gold, which also gave me the title Crazy Cat Lady! Yahoo! :)

I'm at 28,000 kills and no drop yet! Using 1-(1-P)^n, I'm in that lucky 3% of people this will happen to. With the Engineers and occasional hopping, I can kill as many as 2100/hour with moonfire spam, which is the best group for kills/hour in Hillsbrad. I also spent ten hours killing Infected Sludge Guards just south of the Engineers, which nets around 1200/hour. Murlocks are far slower than that. The Tabby is 35k-70k on my server. I had a dream I got the Tabby, but that's the closest I've been.

I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this cat at AH for 146 gold (!). Saved me hours of grinding.

Blows me away that (as of posting) 43.5% of the community has this pet. I've been trying for this guy forever. Checked AH >50 times. Farmed often for him. Finally today, I got him on AH for just 8,000 gold, which was 3k less than I'd ever seen him. He was my 641st pet collected. Being owned by 43.5% however, suggests that he's not that difficult.

Wow, I remember when this pet dropped off of some guy in a house that was a rare drop.

FINALLY!  I had begun to think the cat WAS a lie.  I can now kill Murlocs in my sleep.  All it took was some Steamwheedle Wagon Bomb, courtesy of the Blington, and after swilling that and spending a day going after the Mr. Bigglesworth pets, I returned to Hillsbrad and the first three Murlocs I killed dropped the beast.  I think it was around 5K kills and took 3-5 days of grinding. Subsequently, I've named the feline, Grinder.

The cat is a lie! Also I think I have to break up with the RNG, 16700 kills and counting. - Murlocs and Engineers

I would suggest the Infected Bears around Azurelode Mine in HillsBrad Foothills for this grind. I've Gotten 2 of these pets from them (The First one I gave Away). The bears appear all around the mine, so you can set up an easy farming route, plus the benefit of getting Light Leather, some Medium Leather, Light and Medium hides as well. The only Draw back to this is its a pretty high questing area, however the respawns are decent so there wont be any fighting over the bears for farmers or questers.

Took me about 16 hours of farming (done over 3 days) and 9,928 kills to get this pet. I farmed the Mudsnout Gnolls at Nethander Steed. They respawn fast enough for 2-3 people to farm comfortably at the same time.
