I really feel for you... and I know all about drawing a picture of your cat after its passing. I've got too many pictures like that. It's a lovely idea, and I hope your friend will appreciate it!
I can't give any crits at this stage - volume and mass look fine, as does the fluffy texture, especially considering that you say you're not good with hair. The only tip I could give you would be to make sure that the features of the cat shouldn't just say "cat" but "Harvey", but I can't judge that and it looks as if you don't need such basic advice. So I'm mainly looking forward to seeing this progress.

Well, obviously, you'll have to be the judge of whether it's any cat or Harvey. But I can give you an example of what I meant: I am certain that I could recognize any cat I've ever had even if it had just been given a blue paint job. I can recognize cats' features. If I can distinguish them, I can draw them. But I can't distinguish between two horses of the same race, for example, because I don't know a horse's "facial landscape" well enough.
But as I said, judging by how this pic looks light now, I'm pretty certain you can capture a specific cat's features.
