    Good job. I'm not a cat guy, but I would drop the cats left ear down, symetrical with the other and backbrush or fluff it up from behind with some compressed air.

    Everything should flow smooth on the mount. That neck hair doesn't look right to me,maybe its just the way it was combed,maybe someone should elaborate.
     
  4. Closing the top eyelid some will look better.
     
  5. that left ear still seems off, it should match the other. if its not dry yet, bring the ears up a bit also. other then that it looks good aside from painting.

    Yes you can do finish work without an airbrush, in my opinion it is harder to get a softer look and depth without one. Get a good reference pic and slide it into a spare sheet protector or put plastic wrap over it and mix your paint until you get a color that matches and suits you.

    Great spots on that cat!

    Almost seems like the face 'cheek' tuffs are pulled down on the neck or something. Something is off about that neck fur.

    It looks like you have a too-small head form. The cheek tufts should be on the cheeks, not the neck.
