A few of my cats....

Make sure you always focus on the eyes.
Cute kitty. Look into a flash you can bounce off the ceiling. On-camera flashes pointed right at your subject=very bad. Harsh shadows and blown out highlights.
Well, I can only underline what both Manaheim and Ins3ertNam3H3r3 (that's a hard one to type, boy!) said before me: a) yes, make sure the focus is on the eyes. Although in 1 I can almost FEEL its moist little nose, it would have been nice - given you WANTED the nose to be in focus, too - to ALSO have the eyes in focus (smaller aperture, more depth of field => DOF in TPF lingo). And b) try to avoid using the in-camera flash. The light falls off very fast towards the background, the portrayed faces become very flat, and there are nasty shadows, very strong. You were lucky not to get the "red-eye" effect in any of those here (which is "light-green-eye-effect" for cats, I think, once you light up the tapetum in the back of their eyes).
