For me definitely the colored one.

The second has in my opinion a strange "grain" that looks a bit like "noise" to me. But the first is a great catch. I would love to reproduce it for myself.

The color image is beautiful, without a doubt, but I find I am more drawn to the B/W image, as it has more mystery about it, which is a thing peculiar to cats, which benefits the image in this case.
