Not after an analytical breakdown, just which two variants of my website do, let's say NON I.T. users to this site, think. I'm undecided really.

The layout how the numbers are now, I've set so you can click on them from a mobile or telephone enabled Tablet it the device will auto-dial

Good point though!

What has a miffed looking cat got to with your business? If it's related somehow then fine, if not you send the wrong impression.

Put it like this the first thing I see on a mobile is a phone and cat but mainly the cat as it takes up most room. Further down you say what you do.

Is an miffed ugly cat (sorry cat but your not gonna win any beauty awards, although I've seen worse) sending the right or wrong impression? What's wrong with a photo of a phone, it tells potential customers what you do.

The more I look at the cat the more I suspect it is like the one I had as a child. He was the sort of cat that if he was sat next to that phone would rip your arms to shreds if you dared answer it.

Might sound picky but as someone who is in to photography I struggled with the out of focus cat photo, my other half said it looked like a header for a pet insurance site, we both thought the other one was more professional looking.

Apologies if its your beloved pet!

Hi,

I prefer the cat version. However, maybe look at using a stock image from a site like iStock. That way the image will be a lot more high res, currently a bit blurry.

If you're looking for any digital marketing services, let me know.

All the best,

Tom

I prefer the one with the cat as I think it looks much more modern.

Ignoring the cat you have a simple clean, clear to navigate site with everything you need on the first page. the text is clear and large to read.

Add the cat to the second one. I think it would make people remember your site over others. Site 2 is way more professional but also dull and unremarkable. If there is a competitor or 2 you need to stand out and be remembered hence use cat or even site 1, as it looks more friendly. Site 2 is nicer to use more professional but lacks any warmth, personality or friendliness.

The big problem with the second one is that it is not responsive. The first one is, so I can view it without needing to zoom on my phone unlike with the second. Many people browse on phones and tablets so you need a site that is responsive.

Look up responsive web design if you want to know more.

Why not consider paying someone to design you a site? I'm guessing you do it yourself? I can't imagine it would cost that much for a site like yours as it is nothing complicated.
