Firstly the cat. He/she is georgeous and reminds me of an identical one we had that got run over. We called him biscuit because of the ginger on the head just like yours. (Ginger nut)
Anyway I hope thats softened you up for the blow but you did ask for critiqu. This is fine as a bog standard moggy shot but not cat portrait material I'm afraid. The basket on the rhs is very distracting and the background is less than appealing. You have no real focal point on the cat to draw the eye to and your depth of field is too small. The canon EOS400D is a fine camera (I have the same) and takes good sharp pics. You haven't posted your camera settings which is always a good idea if you want critique but I would hazard a guess that the shot is overexposed (too long shutter speed) and hand held. Indoor shots with natural light must be with a tripod if you want any detail.

Next time, try focusing on either the eye or the nose and increase the DOF so that more of the cat is in focus. Also try to have a less cluttered bg.
Hope that wasn't too harsh but if you think this is good and fair critique please mark as good critique.
