The flash? light to strong if you can do somethink with that will be amazing shot!! but now is very good i the sharpnes is in good place. Back to the light do you want to do somethink like cat is sleeping on snow or.. just hide background? or bug ;]
I totally disagree the bright light brings out the cat more! The picture is great and I thinks its beautifull... the bright flash makes the outline of the cat pop making the overall photo to die for... if you ask me any way.
