Cadaverous Familiar [Magical]
You can take an undead creature as a familiar.
Benefit: With this feat, the familiar ritual is performed on the animated skeleton or zombie of a type of animal that can normally become a familiar. The familiar ceremony works normally, except that the creature is not actually summoned, and must be present and under your control. A skeletal or zombie familiar is just as intelligent as any other familiar. You still get the bonuses associated with that type of (living) familiar. As an undead creature, the cadaverous familiar can be turned or rebuked, but remember that it's hit dice is equal to your level.
Special: If your regular familiar is slain, you can recover the lost experience points by reanimating it and using this feat. If a cadaverous familiar is destroyed, you can merely replace any damaged parts and reanimate the remains, without losing any experience points in the process. You must dismiss any familiar you currently have before binding a new one, but need not wait a year and a day to bind a cadaverous familiar.
