This pet is rewarded via the mail when your character completes the "Shop Smart, Shop Pet...Smart" achievement. To complete this achievement, your character must possess at least 50 unique vanity pets. Upon learning your 50th pet, you'll immediately receive this pet in your mailbox, sent by Dalaran's vendor, Breanni.

Note that Breanni's message asks you to care for him because he "refuses to play nice with others." The message also warns that Stinker "has a thing for black cats." So if he finds a Bombay Cat, Black Tabby Cat, Calico Cat, or a Feline Familiar nearby, he will fall in love with it and chase it around.

This pet is also available as a FigurePets collectible (series 1).

Wonderful pet for a capture team.


Have him in your first slot and if an encounter doesn't have the pet/breed you are looking for, just forfeit and Bleat at the beginning of next fight. And when you find what you want, Perk Up lets you take a couple more hits while your traps miss.

If you are using (Or planning to use) Stinker solely for the purpose of team healing, you may want to look into obtaining a Frostwolf Ghostpup instead. It has the same stat allotment, but Haunting Song has higher values than Bleat with the same cooldown.


Also, its little howl is just heartbreakingly cute. :)

Excellent healer for Celestial Tournament. I think Stinker's Bleat is the best group heal available.

Only P/P Skunk:

By far employing the most P of the skunks. The secondmost has 36 less. With staying-power abilities, such as Perk Up and Bleat, skunks generally act much like tanks. However, as a P/P, it is recommended to replace Perk Up with Rake (if you'd like a little more umph) and Bleat with Stench as an evasive attack.

World First lvl 25 Stinker :P



1400 HP

325 Power

260 Speed


this guy is a tank who hits like one, I'm lvling Terrible Turnip now, with sunshine and perk up he gets I think 2240 max HP or something rediculous. Havnt decided on 3rd but possibly rocket bot to kill off any beasts who want to do him harm.

This is my favorite pet so far.
When I first summoned him while doing a dungeon, one of my team just so happened to have a Bombay cat and seeing the two run around while we're trying to pwn is the most distracting thing in the world, (Especially if you haven't known already that this is Stinker's specialty, charming the lady felines).

The thing that impressed me most about Stinker, is his amazing ability to handle rejection. To have his heart broken over, and over like that, yet continue to renew his faith in the promise of love! What a trooper. Hang in there Stinker, she'll let you catch her... one of these days.

Despite what many people think, skunks make quite good pets. If only my wife would allow it... I make do with Stinker, who is just adorable. He's the only pet I have hot keyed!

I spent a bunch of money makeing sure all my friends had a bombay cat once I got stinker just so he'd always have a playmate. :) Muliple skunks to one cat is the best. Although, the last time I had a group together, the timeing was off and so the cat was chasing all the skunks instead!

When ever i'm walking around with this pet, people always make remarks about how bad the smell is.
But i don't think Stinky smells.
It might be me.

I'm so glad they made Stinker special, with fun animation. The two cats he chases are the black tabby and the bombay.

Why doesn't the fawn do something special though? He was supposed to be for 100 pets originally. And he doesn't get something cool? I still like the fawn, but Stinker is way more awesome.

Stinker uses his aroma to repel predators and attract cats. He's much more successful with the former than the latter.
