My first 3d cat :-)

UPDATE:
New Version:

I used a lot of my photos from Nala and Simba to study cats :-) , make a lot of sketches and study animal anatomy ....

For this model I would not build a model of a real cat.
I would build a cuter version, more looking like a cartoon. So I used some my girlfriends littlest Petshop Pets as references too.

I'm not so happy with the result, but for the first step it is ok...

Tips for a cuter look will be very welcome :-)

Some of my sketches (study s):

Would look better with more detail, but the way you stylized him/her is really really cute! I love how you made the ears tiny, like on a baby kitten! :love:
Maybe make some toes on the paws? I don't know about you, but one of the cutest things about cats for me is their little toes. Otherwise, will look fantastic with some fur detail! Love it so far!

Thanks for your comment.
I work again on the model and sculpt some paws :-)
And make the body not so skinny. I think this version looks a little small / nude

I'm looking forward to the next version! :D

Aww, this is very good for a first step! You should be very proud :)

Hmm, to make it cuter? If you're not afraid of cartoonish proportions you could always make the eyes larger and more open, and adding things like little whiskers and eyebrows might help too! Also, you could experiment with different poses and facial expressions, as your photos showthat you can see a lot from a cat just by their body language!

Hope this helps :)
