    Unable to trade caged pets.

    I have a metric ton of pets I don't use and they refuse to sell for anything worth my time. I have so many pets I have to cage them and send them to a pet bank alt just to hold the pets.
    I figured I would give them away to anyone that wanted them, but every time I try it says that I cannot trade a pet to a player that wasn't there for the original drop of the pet. It doesn't matter what pet it was or when I caged it, I cannot seem to trade any of my caged pets. Is there something obvious I am doing wrong?

    It probably means what it says. The player can't get the pet because he wasn't around when it dropped.

    If they create a level 1 on your realm you can trade it to them.

    Did you add the pets to your collection tab and then put them in a new cage? You have to do that before you can trade them.

    In addition, some pets simply can't be traded at all.

    Any pet you collect via an open world battle - you can't trade.

    Most pets that are drops or purchased - can be traded, but not in the form you buy them in. You first have to learn the pet, then cage it.

    Any caged pet or any other item cannot be traded off your server... so as someone else mentioned get them to make a level 1 and give it to them to learn.

    I'm guessing it's an error due to trying to trade with someone not on your realm.

    I am. Most of them are the "Raiding with Leashes" pets and the others are the pets from The Eternal Palace. As a big transmog whore with A LOT of alts, these pets are now major annoyance.

    Are you trading with people from other realms...?
    If so, they can make a level one on your realm to trade.

    IF they are on your realm and you cannot trade, it is probably due to the message you are getting about raid drop rules.

    They should really consider whether the pets are rare enough drops, considering how they overflow the market...

    It's kind of silly to cage a pet then mail it. Just cage it on your alt. As for trading, you haven't answered the realm questions. If you want to trade to someone on another realm, make a level 1 there first, then cage the pet.

    Had the same problem just trying to give away some duplicate pets - turned out it was a realm thing. Didn't realise the player(s) were on Realm X while my server was realms A-B-C. Gave up in the end and just stuck them all on AH for 1g.

    Get the addon called Autocage. Log on your alt you want them on and then type
    Code:
    /autocage cage
    . It'll then go through and cage all of your duplicate pets and leave you with 1 of each.

    Caged pets are always tradeable and have nothing to do with if they were there or not. If you are getting that error its because you are trying to trade them the dropped version and not a caged version.

    Lastly, in order to trade they must be on your realm. If they aren't, or linked, then you can't. In order to trade them you will need to make a toon on their server, or they one on yours, and then you can trade them.
