Is it possible for a Wizard to gain both an arcane bond and a familiar without multiclassing?

I have not found a way to do it, but I'm keen to find out if it is possible.

I have not found anything specific to pathfinder.

However, there is a dnd 3.5 feat that does this:

Name: Obtain Familiar 
Book: Complete Arcane 
Short description: Gain a familiar.

Complete Arcane, p. 81

  • \$\begingroup\$ Well; despite best efforts to determine something and bribe people; looks like there isn't a way in PF. So awarding this for those people in 3.5, as the other answer hasn't been verified in the referred to book. \$\endgroup\$

It is now Pathfinder legal too. It was adapted in the conversion of Rise of the Runelords. Requires a rank of knowledge arcana and 3rd caster level

    \$\begingroup\$ I don't see that in the Anniversary edition of Rise of the Runelords at all and can find no reference to it in the pfsrd. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Dec 18, 2012 at 16:16
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Rob Found (this)[obsidianportal.com/campaign/rotrllegacy/wikis/obtain-familiar] but no idea how valid it is. \$\endgroup\$ Commented Feb 5, 2013 at 15:11
  • \$\begingroup\$ @Mikalichov Thanks for the link, but not canon. The answer may well be "no" \$\endgroup\$
