Utterly stunning, the small range of colors really highlight each other well, I've never noticed those details on a cat, the iris, the pupil, the way the fur grows around it's whiskers....and I lived with 7 of them once, and spent alot of time studying them.
My only suggestion would be maybe taking it with the whole face in focus? (or now you've done it just sharpen it) I find when looking at the focused parts the rest of the blurry features are a little distracting and confusing.
Again, magnificent, even the background is perfect for this particular type of photo, and instant fav:+fav:
What do you think?

The incredible details on the cat eye are really impressive, made it by a right focus on it. The good quality of the lens make apper all that hairy details of the fur, bringing a high definition of every part of it.

You capture the precise moment to shot, the cats are quite restless and curious, and that its something to empahsize in this work.

The lightness its the right, you can see the shape of the face whit the nice a and soft shadows over it. So is not a flat portrait at all.

And last, the DOF make the cat detached from the back so its well used.
