Can you cast use Feeblemind to Awaken more beasts so I can use them as a sidekick?

Awaken only works on beasts with 4 INT or lower. Feeble lowers INT to 1 for 30 days. Could I use this to broaden the range of animals I could awaken?

I want to introduce a talking monkey as a sidekick into a game RAW for the party lawyers.
