familiars and feats


Do familiars get feats for their "effective" HD as their masters advance in class level?

I didn't think so, but reading the entry here makes me wonder...For the purpose of effects related to number of Hit Dice, use the master’s character level or the familiar’s normal HD total, whichever is higher. Does "gaining feats" count as an "effect related to the number of Hit Dice" ?

Also, how do you folks deal with spellcasting prestige classes and familiar advancement? I've always played that prestige classes (e.g. Archmage) do *not* count towards a familiar's abilities, but the wording is really unclear.
