Composition is okay. Lighting isn't very interesting. Need more detail on either cat whiskers or chest fur. Focus on eyes isn't quite sharp.

Too lacking in detail for this type of shot in my opinion.

Black subjects are always had to photograph, due to their... well, lack of color :) Many details are lost here, and since the photo is not very sharp neither, one would just say "another cat photo" and leave it. My suggestion to improve that kind of photo is to use a light source from one side. This way, the texture will produce small shadows, and will be much more visible.

I love the subtle detail in the cat's coat and the composition is fabulous.
