So since this thing only spawns in the summer and Mists of Pandaria (and Pet Battles along with it) came out after the summer ended, does anyone else see this as an asinine way to make sure no one can get the Zookeeper title until June? I just realized that this is the case, and I'm pretty unhappy about it.

I saw it / thought of it last night. Another crappy FORCED time hook. Just cancel subscription when you want, and then pick it back up later.

IE: The 'every holiday achievement' meta.

Got 6 months to get the owls from Winterspring in the mean time.

And if MoP cam out right as summer hit you would be here complaning that no one could get the pets that spawn in the winter.

I think having these types of "conditioned spawned pets" is nifty personally.

I think some of the "conditioned spawned pets" as Timat put it are pretty awesome but the seasonal ones require more commitment than I care for. Planning to do stuff in a video game months in advance seems kind of wacky to me, personally.

You dont need to "plan" for it really.

Summer is how long? Assuming you log in at least once during that time you will have a reasonable shot at getting the pet. I havent "planned" any play time, but I am more than sure I will have at least SOME time during the summer to catch the thing.

No, I would have no issue if this came out in Summer. However, I have never stayed with the game for more than 4 months at a time. Having it wait a few months isn't a big deal because there are other things to work at until then. However, I'll have all of this content comsumed in NINE months, and I'll probably have left by February from boredom again.

I agree that there is a coolness to the limited spawns, but I am also not a fan of forcing difficulty in the form of making us wait an incredibly long time. I've totally been putting the work in for this since Tuesday, even resubbed to do it. That's where it becomes really annoying--I'm putting the work and not getting rewarded because of a weird time constraint.

As for the whole planning, I got my last time card LAST September, meaning it ended in November. I then got 7 free days in December, a Scroll (another 7 days) in April, and 7 free days a week ago (Blizzard mistakenly locked my account and gave me a free week as compensation). So you say you WILL be here for the summer, but I wasn't. I didn't subscribe for 10 months.

Is there a list somewhere of which pets are "seasonal" like this?

I find those "realm first" messages really demotivating, so I prefer it this way.
