If I summon a familiar and it dies, when I resummon it, is it another spirit taking the same form?

If I just recast the find familiar spell, and get it to assume a new form I assume It's the same spirit.

Your familiar transforms into the chosen creature.

But is the same the case for when the familiar dies?



You gain the service of a familiar, a spirit that takes an animal form you choose

When the familiar drops to 0 Hit Points, it disappears, leaving behind no physical form. It reappears after you cast this spell again.

As an action while it is temporarily dismissed, you can cause it to reappear in any unoccupied space within 30 feet of you.

If you cast this spell while you already have a familiar, you instead cause it to adopt a new form.

It is always the same spirit. Oh, and familiars don’t “die” - they “disappear” because while the “animal form” is a creature, the “spirit” isn’t.
