So we have come to that juncture in time. What to do with rare pets? Well luckily for you I'm just crazy enough to put together a list, organized by means of obtaining, of all the current pets that are going to be made into Rare Battle pets. That list can be found here. Take a moment to familiarize yourself with this. It's important.
You may be thinking "Why put together a list of the BoP and BoE pets? We gold makers only care about the BoEs!". Well you should care about the BoP pets as well because even though "All promotional, CE, Blizzard Pet Store, TCG and quest pets are currently not tradeable", rare spawns will be, as seen in my table (as well as Achievement and DMF pets). Also note that Catchable pets will be non-tradeable (this post more recent than quoted post, meaning the only way to obtain rares without going out and catching them is these pets. (I told you this list is important!!!)). But first, as any respectable post including BoE items goes, a list for finding the BoE pets on the AH:
The BoE Pets:
***Rare Battle Pets:
So now the truly interesting part of the post. The pets that I'm most focused on is these. The rare spawns. The Darkmoon pets will be tradeable, but IMO they're too common/easy to obtain. Also, the Profession and Achievement pets will possibly be tradeable. I have a feeling the Achievement ones may be made non-tradeable so I'm not going to solely focus on them.
The reason we want to get these is because "If you have multiple versions of the same pet on multiple characters on your account, they will be merged into one. We will place any extras in your bags or mail them to you if you are out of space." This is important. If you get say 10 of a rare BoP pet, one on each of your alts, you will recieve 9 in the mail that are (as of right now) sellable. DISCLAIMER: I'm not guaranteeing that this will be how it is when MoP ships, but for now it's all we have to go on, and I'm digging it.
First is my favorite from the bunch:

There are two pets in Deepholm that I have my eye on for Battle Pets. Pebble, the reward from doing 10 Dailies: Rock Lover, and Tiny Shale Spider, obtained from killing the rare spawn Jadefang. If you have the dailies unlocked in Uldum you can try for both of these. I had never gone after Jadefang before so I tried to see how difficult it was. Jadefang was there when I went, and I got my first Tiny Shale Spider. This comment on Wowhead explains how to get there perfectly. For both of these you will need to have the dailies in Deepholm unlocked. Like I said originally I am skeptical as to whether or not Achievment pets (in this case Pebble) will be tradeable, but I am confident that the Rare Spawns will be (ie Tiny Shale Spider).
*WARNING: Since Jadefang is (or was before Molten Front) a sought after pet, odds are Jadefang will be cached on your NPC Scan, don't let NPC Scan fool you, check for yourself. You will be able to target Jadefang, if there, from the green rock (see the comment on wowhead).*

That's all for me on the gold making front of these pets. Which one of the Rare Battle Pets are you most excited about?
