I've decided on this pic to do as a portrate of my cat, Pusskiss, but i can't decide on the composition. Any and all suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

I've realized lately that many of my pictures have no focal point. In a portrait, I guess I'd make that the eyes or at least on of the eyes, so should this be placed at the 3rd junction?

Should a protraite be the face only? Should I crop this to a portraite rather that a landscape paper?

I love the light and shadow on the fur. How do I emphasize this without drawing attention away from the eyes or face.

Should I just paint it as it is but with a sort of blurry background?

Decisions decisions decisions!
