Here's one pet that everyone's gonna get, on the condition that they convert their WoW account to Battle.net. Since conversion is mandatory (you've probably noticed the notification in your WoW client at the login screen), Blizzard offers this free pet to everyone who has created a Battle.net account before the 11 November deadline to "soften the blow" for those who are reticent to change.
Since I've converted my account a long time ago, all I had to do was pick the new pet from the mail. If you haven't converted to Battle.net yet, you won't see the pet but don't worry. Sooner or later, if you still want to play WoW that is, you will have to convert. As of today there are 27 days remaining. Tick tock.
This rounds up my collection nicely to 80 pets.
