Initially, it's imperative that I say that your artwork here is mind-blowing. Your cat has some very beautiful eyes!
I don't see anything that I feel you need to improve in. And since this is a cat you were photographing, I doubt the circumstance to repeat this shot would ever come again! So I'll focus on some of the great things I noticed about this picture.

The first thing I noticed, of course, is the rich color in the pupil. The detail and focus here is what makes this picture so wonderful. You did a great job capturing this.
Your cat also has some very healthy eyes. There is no lacrimal drainage from the tear ducts that might indicate any infection. For picture taking this is especially good, because small imperfections like that can ruin the whole picture.
I'm surprised your cat allowed you to get that close! At 7mm, you would have been, about 1 inch from the cat's face? Cats are notorious at messing up even the best photographers plans.
To conclude I would like to say that it has been a treat to write this critique for you. I look forward to seeing more artwork from you.

First of all, I'd would like to point out how different this is from the usual images I've seen of cat eyes. The way the eye is shining is truly the eye of an predator, what a cat in the end is. Without being able to make out much besides the eye is stunning and creates the perfect mood for this photograph.

Not to mention the absolutely amazing colors of the eye. I don't think I've ever seen such a strong color in a cat's eye. The colors truly create an impact on the viewer and you cannot turn away without thinking of something rushing out when you're not looking.

The quality of the image is very good. However, when looked closely at the photograph you can see slightly differently colored patches around the left and right bottom corners. I believe this could be changed by adjusting contrast/brightness just a tiny bit.

As final words I'd like to say how much this reminds me of an encounter when I was younger. At night with just the light of a flashlight I there were two shiny spots in the forest. The reflection of lynxes eyes. By bringing my old memories back so clearly, I must say you have done a great job with this photograph.

Well, I know that Toothless was actually based on a mountain lion that one of the staff members met at a rehabilitation center. They just shifted species to a black leopard :D
