Adorable cat but for the frame you chose I think too much of the picture is blurry.

6 - Ah, shame that paw is chopped. Whilst the blue in the fabric helps to bring out Simba's beautiful eyes, not sure it is doing it as well as a different choice may have. Even more clarity on those eyes and a variation in composition make this even better in my opinion. The frame is a little too thick as well - again, in my opinion. edit:typo

Surely the most beautiful kitten of this challenge !(but please don't tell my babies I've written that ... lol)
She's so lovely ! I would maybe have chosen another background , something more neutral.
Very cute expression and pose !

Lovely cat (kitten?). WOuld stand out more on a solid or more subtly patterned background.

OK - this is stupid and doesn't take away from the overall quality of the shot, but ... could you get rid of that yellow speck in the bottom left? Just continue the blue square. kthxbye!

Truly a princess. I would have selected a plainer background to keep eyes glued on this lovely darling.

the multicolored cloth is very distracting, had cropped to square (and not cropped at the paw)
