This is from a wonderful photo reference on Paint my Photo by Dawne Poole. Size: 5 x 7". Enjoyed doing this one and my 92 year old Dad loved it so much he wanted to buy it, but as it was his birthday yesterday, he is having it as a birthday present. Just got to tweak a little in the ear area, varnish and frame. Funny how the photo has brought the backgroud out more as in reality this is all very muted, but you get the gist.

Jenny, this is such a wonderful piece. You've captured that wisdom and soft intelligence that cats have in their gaze. It will make a wonderful gift for your dad. He will be thrilled!

What great fur!! I agree some fur transitioning into the ear and in the ear would be the only thing to add.

Thanks all. Have noted the comments and can still tweak. The photo shows the background up much more than it is in reality. It is much more muted than it seems.
