    so i've read somewhere that it is better to include what the subject looking at and I'm a bit undecided. I think in some cases that is true but what do you think in the following case?

    there's space for the viewer to see in the direction the cat is looking at. that's what important rather than the actual subject itself. so this composition follows that rule.

    Looking at this strictly from a compositional POV (ignoring focus, not seeing the eyes, etc ...), I think it works OK. The viewer's eyes follow those of the cat, and that is what you want (I think).

    My favorite Composition book, BTW, is The Photographer's Eye by Michael Freeman
