That is very lovely...wonderful job on the eyes, you've captured the kitten curiousity.

What a lovely start on the head.  I love doing portraits of my pets as well.  I'm not sure if you are referring to the waxy colorless blender or the liquid one; the waxy one I suspect.  I would suggest used odorless mineral spirits to blend but I'm not sure how Mi-tientes paper will hold up to that.  Sorry I can't be more help but I got frustrated with dry blending some time ago and mostly use OMS now.  I hope you've gotten more useful advice....that really has the makings of a very nice painting.

Graphite / Re: Preventing smearing

I'm curious what others use to prevent smearing of graphite under your drawing hand.  I find that paper towels do not work very well, especially on a smooth surface like bristol.  Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
