I saw these yesterday, but didn't have time to comment appropriately - and I wasn't sure I wanted to, because your technical skills are good, but it seems that you're fishing for compliments.
I think your pet images are cute - but in large part due to the cuteness of the subject. I mean, you're doing well photographically - but a human viewer will respond to a cute pet image more easily, with less critical evaluation, than the same view might project onto an image of a beautiful woman, or a nude art study, or a portrait of a loved one. I think you're expecting too much to be able to create as fetching an image of a model with as much ease as you can such a pet.
I don't mean to sound harsh - these are very nice. Of a cute pet.
