You cannot summon a familiar. It is an animal spirit in Physical form. Not everyone has one, and not everyone gets one.
Since they are often pets, you would care for it as you would to its species.

Feed it energy and communicate with it, treat it with respect. It should be able to tell you how to best work with it. Mostly the communication thing.

Again, because the other posters here are insisting that familiars are actual animals instead of spirits, once you've summoned your familiar the most important thing is to get to know it. It'll know, at least in my experience, what it can do. So the best thing for you to do is to work with it to figure out how it can best help you. Treat it with respect, it is still a spirit and you do still want it to stay willing to help you rather than mess with you.

A familiar is a spirit in animal form. After you summon it treat it just as you would whatever species it has decided to take.

-_- The "Familiar Spirit" is not a spirit in animal form, it's a spirit. Thats why it's called the "Familiar Spirit." The Familiar Spirit will come to you once you are ready for it. Two very different concepts surround the idea of the Familiar Spirit, the first being that the Familiar is a part of you already. When you find yourself one, talking to yourself and answering yourself (because keys be honest here, EVERYONE does it), it's said the voice of the Familiar Spirit is the one which responds. This relationship is seen as a very close, perhaps even sexual one. It's based in self love and growth.

The second concept states the Familiar Spirit is an outside entity which will revels itself to the witch in question when the witch is ready. It is this spirit the witch works most commonly with, constantly communing with it, giving offering, and working all forms of magic with its aid. The Familiar will aid the witch by communing with them in the Otherworld, giving boosts to their spells, and defending the witch from any who would do them harm. A witch with a strong relationship with their Familiar Spirit need fear no other witch or spirit. The Familiar Spirit in essence becomes a Guardian, Partner, and Counsellor.

Both concepts have their merits, it really comes down to what you believe as a person. I ascribe to the latter belief, but that's just me.

A good article to check out. Yes, it's Wikipedia, but it's pretty spot on.

If you do not have a familiar and are in need of one - since a familiar is spirit - the best way is to ask the spirits for a familiar, be open, and let it happen. Whether you live in a place where there are no eligible animals around, it doesn't matter. Spirit always finds a way. Ask believe and you will receive. Be patient - spirit doesn't work on our time, but on their own. It will usually come right when you really need it - not necessarily earlier! You will be drawn to what is right for you. Take very good care of your familiar and make sure they are always fed, watered, and protected from harm.
