Hilbert (a cat)
Lens: Tamron 90mm f/2.8 1:1 SP AF Macro Camera: K-S2 

Hi all *this was an unexpectedly plaintiff-looking shot of my cat, and I became somewhat attached to it. He normally begs for food much more aggressively than this. I'm unsure of the composition and background though -- it's a bit "stock photo"y. What do you think?

It is a nice picture of your cat.
I don't mind the colorful background either. Focus might could have been a tad closer, so the whole eye would have been sharp and not start beeing sharp in the middle of it but this way the nose is sharp too which is nice.
The black spot near the mouth bothers me a little because it draws too much attention in my opinion (easily corrected in post).
Your cat is looking up, therefore I would have liked a little more space showing above it's head.

I really don't mind the background at all. Would have liked more sharpness on the eye though.
