Petisphinxes are diminutive magical beasts originally bred from criosphinxes and gynosphinxes and altered by various transmutations to serve as familiars or housepets. They come in both genders. Many have since been released into the wild for various reasons, and many have been adapted by their greater kin, whose alignment they generally mimic. Petisphinxes are much like house cats in temperament, haughty and mischievious. Petisphinxes look much like sandy-coated house cats, but they sport a pair of eagle-like wings. They lack the humanoid faces of larger sphinxes save for their eyes, which resemble those of halflings. An arcane spellcaster of 3rd level and with the Improved Familiar feat may take a Petisphinx as a familiar.

Pounce (Ex)
If a Petisphinx charges a foe, it can make a full attack, including two rake attacks.

Rake (Ex)
A Petisphinx that pounces onto a creature can make two rake attacks with its hind legs. Each has an attack bonus of +6 and deals 1d2-1 damage.

Love the title of the thread. The Presidents of the United States of America remains my favorite band.

The Petisphinx seems a little underpowered to warrant Improved Familiar. Sure it hits better than most normal familiars, but that's still only 3 damage tops from a full attack.

Oh well. I like the idea. Good job, and once again your insane ability to produce monsters never fails to amaze me.
