The Familiar Monument is north near the border to the Blessed Plains. It’s high up on the mountain but you can reach it with magic parkour.

Get there, sneak up to the cat as explained in the tutorial to befriend it. It is a bit tricky, since there are enemies around it and it will disappear when you fight them. Return to the monument to reset and try again if it does.
