Special Abilities

Corrosive Tongue (Ex) A jellicat's lick inflicts 1 point of nonlethal acid damage to creatures as a standard action, or 1 point of acid damage to objects with hardness 10 or less after licking it for a number of rounds equal to its hardness. A jellicat gains +10 bonus to taste-based Perception checks, to Perception checks made to notice creatures and creatures they have tasted, and to Survival checks made to track such creatures and objects.

Soft Slam (Ex) A jellicat paws are gelatinous and soft like the rest of its body, inflicting damage equal to its Strength bonus (minimum 1 point of nonlethal damage). On a confirmed critical hit, soft slam gains push 5 ft. universal monster rule.

Jellicats are felline-shaped oozes. Despite their strange anatomy, they resemble cats in form and behavior, though they are less predatory. Instead they are absolute omnivores with a penchant for discovering new tastes—which they do by licking newly encountered things with their corrosive tongues.

Jellicats reproduce by two or more specimens fusing together for an hour or so after gorging themselves on food and certain combinations of flavors, and then splitting into twice as many individuals with young template.

Jellicats can be influenced with Wild Empathy and reared with Handle Animals as if they were wild animals, though any Wild Empathy and Handle Animals check suffer a –10 penalty and even after they are reared and trained, they can't be pushed to perform tricks they don't know. No training regimen yet invented seems to be capable to teach them not to lick newly encountered creatures, though they can be taught specific trick where their handler orders them to refrain from licking novelties for a short time.

A jellicat makes a suitable familiar for a 7th level caster with Improved Familiar feat.
