Pocket Menagerie

This project is abandoned.

Whether this project is out of date or its author marked it as abandoned, this project is no longer maintained.

Main Screen

An addon to help you access your (favorite) non-combat pets (also known as small pets, mini pets, vanity pets, etc.).

PLEASE NOTE: If you still have any version of this addon prior to 2.x installed, you will want to remove the folder and all files. I have renamed the addon folder and files, as there are other addons now which use the same folder name this addon had been using.

I am taking over for Dourd in regard to keeping this addon updated. He wrote to me:

Lately with work commitments and other RL stuff I no longer have time to work on updates, or really play wow as much as before.

Ofcourse you have my permission to update / take over the Pocket Menagerie project all you wish and upload for the people to enjoy :)

And thank you for taking the time to update the code and seek permission, a rarity these days.


The main update is the addition of two extra rows of buttons to the main frame. After having added my 85th pet to my collection on my main, the addon was giving me an error. This was due to the fact that it was only expecting a maximum of 84 pets. At the current time, it is possible to have 99 small pets on a single character (assuming you are on a US server). As such two more rows are required to accommodate that many pets.

As of 1.2.1, there is one more row. Though it is not needed presently, there was space for it to be added without further changing the size of the main window, so I figured I'd add it now. Plus, I added it to my mount version of the addon, Pocket Stable, and I wanted to keep them consistent.

~ Original Description ~ <<quote>>With the introduction of the new Pet & Mount system we can now carry all of our non combat pets with us, all the time, this is great, but I personaly have over 50 pets and trying to find the ones I really like is literally like finding a needle in a haystack, except this haystack has my pet Boar Irwin in it and he's not too happy about me poking around his haystack ;)

To make things a little easier and fun I created an addon that shows you all of your pets and lets you pick 10 of them as your faves to quickly summon them whenever you want without having to look for ages.

Release History

Version 1.1

  • Fixed a bug which could result in the Pocket Menagerie button being duplicated when you zone.

Version 1.0

  • Initial Release.


The first time you run the addon, there will be a button in the middle of your screen that looks like a baby seal cub.

Hovering over this button shows your Favourites Bar (this will be blank at first)

  • Hold the Right Mouse Button to drag this Button wherever you want
  • Left Click The Mouse to bring up the main Pet Menagerie Screen.

Main Pet Menagerie Screen

This screen shows all of your non combat pets in one large grid at the bottom of the window, and at the top, is a list of your 10 favourite pets.

  • Left Click a pet will summon it.
  • Right Click a pet will add it to your Favourites Bar

You can remove a pet from your favourites by Right Clicking On it.<</quote>>
