Note Familiar feats can be taken by characters who have familiars that meet the listed prerequisites. Wizards can take a familiar feat as a bonus feat, and witches can select a familiar feat in place of a hex. If you lose your familiar and gain a new familiar that doesn’t meet the listed prerequisites for a familiar feat you possess, your new familiar doesn’t gain the benefits of that feat. A new familiar that meets the prerequisites automatically gains the benefits of that feat. When you gain a new level, if your current familiar does not meet the prerequisite of a familiar feat you possess, you can learn a new familiar feat in place of the feat your familiar doesn’t qualify for. In effect, you lose the old familiar feat in exchange for the new one. The feat lost can’t be a prerequisite for another feat you possess, and your familiar must meet the new feat’s prerequisites. You can exchange only one feat in this way each time you gain a level.
Your familiar can speak with animals other than those of its own kind.
Prerequisite(s): Must have a familiar.
Special: This feat can be taken multiple times, choosing a different category of creature each time. The first time you take this feat, if your familiar can’t already speak with creatures of its kind, you must choose that category of creature. If your familiar later gains the ability to speak with creatures of its kind, you can choose to apply this feat’s benefits to a different category of creature instead.
