You know- my cat did that, but he was a big fluff ball, so not only get he get in the way, but the fluff got EVERYWHERE. I loved him terribly, but those were the few moments I seriously felt like chucking him across the room ^^; Of corse I never would cause he was too adorable to be mean too ^^
I think the cat itself looks nice, but the position s/he's in looks a bit uncomfortable. Perhaps having him/her's front lean a bit more forward. Bend his/her legs a bit.
Kind of like the visual crit. I'm sorry it's not the greatest. I did it in Paint. But something along those lines, maybe? I don't know a lot about kitty anatomy, but maybe that will make your cat look a little more natural.
