Guide: Critter Love...or was it Hate?

While waiting for dungeon queues I found myself a bit bored and looking for something easy to do meanwhile. The immediate thought of doing achievements came to mind. Specifically the critter one! Apparently not only do we have to love critters but we also have to smack around a few. Talk about having a love/hate relationship.

I love you..but I want to kill you too!
I can't help but wonder if the creators of the achievement sat in their chairs and cackled maniacally at the thought of players both loving and killing critters. Hmm, I think they most likely did have a laugh or two at our expense. So here's a few macros to help you out if you're doing this crazy achievement series. There is a total of  four to do!

Helpful Note:
Some of the critters can be captured via pet battles so if you know someone who has them all get that friend to summon the pet out. Then target it and /love it. This works for all the /love achievements as long as the pets can be captured.
