This has a nice regal sense to it - a cat as a worshipped and pampered creature.

Oh, I hope this one does well. It's a stunning portrait. The fireplace background is a wonderful touch! Darn cats are so hard to handle...if only his/her ears were focused forward this would be perfect. Well done!

Nice contrast with the background. Nice and sharp. Lots of personality in your cat. Only comment would be to reduce the noise in the background a little bit, or blur it up a little bit. But that is small.

Feels very much like a studio portrait. I especially like the context provided by the background and the complimentary colors in the fire. Well done.
