There's lots of good cat taxidermists in the state Dave. Check some websites and visit the PTA site http://www.pataxidermy.com to find someone near you. Take the time to visit the studio and actually look at the work being done there. Feel free to take photos of live cats with you.
Let me know what area of the state you're in and I can point you toward a few.
I've used Mike Walsh for taxidermy work. He is one of the best out there. Here's the link for his site. Click on the smaller pics to view enlarged photos. His attention to detail is impeccable. He is located here on Long Island.
