Composition

Composition-wise, is there anything better I could have done with this shot? This is a real alley cat that I stumbled upon in the alleyways of Casablanca whose quizzical look seemed to question what I was doing there. I cleaned it up a bit in PS but it lost some of its detail when I downsized it.
