Pretty picture a bit cliche' but as I said I love cats :)
Cats are my favorite animals and as such I may be a bit biased.
Pretty good composition, they seem to be attentive and interested
Use of camera,
I think you did well here with f8 as your aperture, you may want to use a larger aperture in the future as the DOF would be shallower and work better for this type of shot.
I am a little distracted by the detail in the background, Most new shooters don't consider this when doing the shot and use a smaller aperture thinking the picture will be sharper, actually if you had used your widest aperture you would have blurred the background while maintaining the sharpness in the cats eyes. Try it next time, also for portraits.
Not a lot of color, you could have increased that a bit in Photoshop but it looks fine, they don't have a lot of color anyway, just thought you could punch it up a bit.
It's really hard to really see the focus here on these small samples but it looks a tad soft.
These two little balls of due are adorable and "posed" for me. Could you resist faces like that. Up for adoption. Hope you like the photograph.

How to improve your photo
Use larger aperture
pop whatever colors you are dealt with.
The cat on the left looks sharper than the other one, wonder why, could just be the reproduction here. Keep shooting these kinds of shots Leonard, it takes lots or practice. I know lots of Pros who say the most difficult shooting is children and animals.
