    Default "I'm Puss! ...In Boots~" Talking Cat Race

    Watched Puss in Boots and got an idea. I'm a little concerned about the LA.


    TALKING CAT CHARACTERS

    Talking cat characters possess the following racial traits.
    • Str -2, Dex +4, Con -2, Int -4, Wis +2 (+2 App)
    • Tiny Quadrapedal Magical Beast. (+4 to AC and Attack, -12 to grapple, +12 to hide
    • 2.5 foot space and 0 foot reach
    • Speed: 30 feet
    • Special Attacks: Pounce, Rake (1d2+Str)
    • Special Qualities: Low-light vision, Paw-Hands, scent, Skills
    • Automatic Languages: Common, Felis. Bonus Languages: Any
    • Favored Class: Rogue
    • Level adjustment: +0


    Paw-Hands:Talking cats can wield weapons in their forepaws(taking a -2 to each attack with a manufactured weapon), but they cannot use that claw for attacking if it is being used and must move at half (15') speed as long as at least one is full or at 1/3rd speed (10') if moving bipedal.
    Bonus Feat: Talking cats gain Weapon Finesse as a bonus feat at 1st level
    Natural Attacks: Talking cats have three natural weapons, two claw attacks that deal (1d2 plus strength) damage and a bite attack that deals (1d3 plus strength damage)
    Skills: Talking cats have a +4 racial bonus on Climb, Hide, and Move Silently checks and a +8 racial bonus on Jump checks. Cats have a +8 racial bonus on Balance checks. They use their Dexterity modifier instead of their Strength modifier for Climb and Jump checks. *In areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth, the Hide bonus rises to +8.

    Those are some painful ability score penalties! -8 Strength and -4 Con means no melee characters, and given the mental penalties they won't make it as casters (except Bard or Sorcerer). I realise you're basing it off the movie character but I'd suggest reducing the Str and Con penalties and giving them +2 Wis (like standard animals) instead of -2.

    Awaken gives HD to the animal, which means that it can't be played as a first level character.

    I think I was overestimating the benefit of the size bonus, bonus feat, and natural attacks.
