I have harbored quite a few waiting to release them back in the wild come Cataclysm. Not heard anything about Black Tabby being on any loot table.
That is odd. Everything I've read about the Black Tabby indicates it will be rarer in Cataclysm. The rare spawn which dropped the tabby at roughly a 20% rate (the Dalaran Spellscribe in Ambermill) was not seen on the Beta servers. I agree with Captain: if you have the gold, then it might be worth the risk.
Let's find out after today if the Black Tabby still drops. From the dawn of Cata Beta, every news point towards Amber Mill Dalaran NPCs being removed; i.e. Black Tabby loot table no longer exist. Blizzard reversed decision on ZG raptor pet because the Devs drank the QQ Kool-Aid, but nobody QQ hard enough for the Black Tabby. I really hope this pet fell through the cracks and those who horde profits.
I will add I think the 20% drop rate is BOGUS. You don't want to know how many times I killed the Dalaran Spellscribe and didn't get the drop. My drop rate was closer to 5%, and that's with over 50 kills. I know, I know, it's all about probability, but 5% in 50 kills?

What about the White Kitten?
Does anyone know for sure if it's out of the game completly? Would be a great help, thanks!
Here is the black tabby page. My personal droprate was somewhat lower than 20%. If this is indeed so, then you are just really unlucky. How unlucky? Using the binomial probabilty distribution function, the odds of seeing 3 drops (6%) after 50 kills assuming a 20% droprate would be around 0.437%.
You mention this. Mornia is seeing this with Captured Firely. In the past couple of months there have been the following strange patterns:
6 (of which I bought 4)
21 (I bought all)
Just in the past couple of days there also:
5 (0, although TUJ just told me they are now listed at 1500g each, so I'm buying them all) on DH.
One of my core beliefs is not to let statistical anomalies scare you, and I'm not concerned, but I'm puzzled here. No way it's a dupe - if so it would be far more pervasive. The only thing I can think of is that it's hackers laundering money - they buy up all the X premium items on a server they can (maybe they spam trade WTB) and then transfer a character with them?
What about my poor white kitten?
No one got any information about lil' timmy?
