My cat's eye, a John Keats poem:

To a Cat
by John Keats

Cat! who has pass'd thy grand climacteric,
How many mice and rats hast in thy days
Destroy'd? How many tit-bits stolen? Gaze
With those bright languid segments green, and
Those velvet ears - but prythee do not stick
Thy latent talons in me - and tell me all thy frays,
Of fish and mice, and rats and tender chick;
Nay, look not down, nor lick thy dainty wrists, -
For all the wheezy asthma - and for all
Thy tail's tip is nick'd off - and though the fists
Of many a maid have given thee many a maul,
Still is thy fur as when the lists
In youth thou enter'dst on glass-bottled wall.

You have the concept & tones. However, due to over cropping, it has resulted in lesser image quality than shooting closer.

I like the composition, but I'm seeing a ton of noise and the eye isn't quite as sharp as I'd like.
