Cartoon character walk

I have copied several of the walks from Richard Williams' Animator's Survival Kit.  So, I wanted to try my hand at creating my own walk with one of my own characters.  You may recognize the cat from my portfolio for Capilano's Commercial Animation program.  I draw him quite frequently.  I wanted to give him a relaxed, confident stride.  This is by far the most complex animation I have ever attempted.  I am very happy with the results.  The motion of the arms is more stiff than I would like.  Also, some of the frames by themselves are actually kind of ugly.  I think it would read better and boil less with thinner lines on the final colored version.
