Check out how to get the new 4.0.3a companion pets after the break (and be sure to check 'em out in 3D)!
Cataclysm is bringing a whole mess of new companion pets (don't worry, I'll cover those in depth later) but a few were added sooner, in the recent Shattering patch! Each of these pets are available to

is a gloomy little dead treant available via a quest for Alliance players and from a vendor for the Horde. Unfortunately, for Alliance players, this little guy requires a bit more work as he is rewarded from the quest
, which only unlocks after completing a rather long and involved quest chain. You can see the full prerequisite quest chains required
. I suppose it isn't all that bad, as I'd assume that many Alliance players would be interested in doing the quest chains and finding out what's been going on since the destruction of Auberdine. Just be sure to loot the

Horde players, on the other hand, need to head out to

Also, keep in mind that the vendor NPC is hostile to Alliance, so he very may well be dead when you head out there - but no worries, he's on a fast respawn.
Withers is a rather unique pet in that when he initially summoned he's
, but he gradually 'withers' away and gets smaller and smaller, until he ends up at a normal companion pet size (similar to the

Once in Chiselgrip, you will be instructed to assemble a disguise (
