Not bad at all, I can't work out though wether it would be improved with more ear or less, at the moment they distract from the amazing eye contact.
Black animals are supposed to be the hardest to shoot, so hats off to you for that.

He may look cute but believe me he aint always so still and calm. Especially at 5.30am on a Saturday when he runs into my bedroom, jumps on my chest and screams in my ear 'cos he is hungry, then the clawking and nudging with wet nose starts!!!

On a serious note though I would like to see his ears, looks a bit strange without them, never noticed until on mentioned it.

Still a good shot even more so because I know how flighty he is

Well done on this fantastic image. Such detail showing in the black is a feat in itself, and those eyes are just wonderful.
