Paws look amazing, the fur is just incredibly well done.
While I find the cat as such is really beautifully done, the background somehow draws too much attention away from the cat. I don't think it's the tone of colour of the background but more the bushes and branches that mess a little with the watcher's focus. The background isn't terribly disturbing, just a faint distraction from the cat.
All in all, however, I find you did an outstanding job on this one regardless
