Checking the AH and saw this. Not a UI glitch as it was visible to a guildy. This pet isn't supposed to be cageable, but being a crap version I'd guess whatever bug/exploit causes this isn't reliably reproducible. Interesting stuff.
some men just want to watch the world burn.
On a different note, how unbelievably easy is that pet to obtain in poor quality, and why would someone pay even 1g for it, much less 150-200g.

I mean, I could see if it was speed or power based, but balance, LAME.

Also, have you tried messaging Gyzzmo and asking how they did it?
In the picture, the ilvl of the squirrel is 4 and in the tool tip it's 3... Why is there a box around just the name of the squirrel?
The auctioneer addon the player is using to view the auction house, prevents pet tool tips from showing. Plus, the auction house and pet journal can't be open at the same time.
Your mouse pointer isn't in the picture, but even mousing over the pet in the AH would either do nothing, create a possibly frozen tooltip not shown in your picture or give you an error message, because auctioneer hates pets. It would not create a highlighted box that looks exactly like an "insert text' box you'd get in a image editor.
57 of my friends said your pic looks photo-shopped. My 57 friends beats your 1 friend.
Hmm, if it was some exploit, I'd guess there would be lots of wild pets up by now. I'm wondering if that guy had some issue with his pet list and a GM restored a pet to him via a Pet Cage that he's then able to sell on.
Note that I never called you names. I'd appreciate the same treatment.
Edit: I just created an alt and viewed the Blighted squirrel on the AH myself. I still stand by my skepticism of the original screen shot with odd photo-shopped box around the Blight squirrel on the AH and the pet journal stuff pasted in the corner. Still no need for name calling though.

Maybe there is a glitch and this pet is cageable. Would be funny to try that out later when I play
