Nice work shaping the mane. I think his nose is a bit large, but overall he looks quite catlike.

On the presentation side, it's still really nice that you do the shots outdoors, but could you maybe decrease the DOF or use less chaotic backgrounds? It's hard to pick out the details in the sculpture with all the other stuff to see!
