I have been playing with polypaint and Zprojection in Zbrush and this is an attempt to clone my kitty Lynx to the HW3D Housecat.
Sadly Zbrush decided to crack a hissy fit (user error no doubt) and would not export a 4098 map from the plugin so had to settle for this one, I had better luck previously with the DAZ Millenium cat but unsure what I did differently.
Anyway its free to use for those wanting another coat variation.

That looks very nice.

By the way, ZBrush won't allow you to export textures larger than the objects UV size. So if you imported the Hivewire Cat into ZBrush and it's UV size is 2048 (I don't have the cat so I don't know its UV size), the maximum texture you can make and export from ZBrush is 2048.
The only way around it is to remake the cats UV's to 4096.

I like your texture, I have been working with Poser since Poser 4 and Daz 3d since version 3 and dabbled with Zbrush, but have never done a cat texture and would love to learn how to do textures for my two cats. If at sometime you could post how you did yours, I am sure that other people and I would be very happy
