This is a lovely shot. (Helps too that I am a cat person, lol!)
Great use of thirds, the light is diffused well, the b/g colours complements the cat's coat. Foreground leg looks a tiny bit oof (out-of-focus) but am not on home computer, so can't be 100% sure. Many dpc'ers don't like quiet backgrounds, without much happening; I think they are fine for this challenge, as quietude of some sort is what is asked for.
Flaws...crop on right side and top looks very tight. Include entire ear and some space above it, so kitty can twitch his/her ear while dreaming and not slam it into the perimeter :-) Light on blankie towards left could be seen as glare.
If I were shooting I'd leave more room around cat's head and foremost leg. Easier to crop in from too big a shot, and resize, than shoot too close and not have any room to manuever.
I'll give this a 6 as is, but with a little work could easily go up a notch or two. Nice work! :-)
