The DOF was very shallow on this shot and didn't catch Furface as I wanted. Under basic editing rules I can't recover it enough for my liking. I do love the bokeh in the background of this shot though.

I think I would have tried a noise reuction filter to soften the bokeh a little.

The bokeh looks like a painting! Just gorgeous!

But I would have loved to see the cat a bit closer, or perhaps looking at the camera. It would have been awesome against that background!
