I would think it would do with the harsh lighting from the flash used.  The fur around the kitten's eyes are overexposed and the shadows are underexposed.  Also, on your first photo there is a white border on the left side that would need to be cropped out.  Ideally, you may want to remove the bright flash from the kitten's eyes in the second photo as well.

There are already more than 1.3 million adorable and well photographed kitten and cat images on Adobe Stock.

Snapshots of pets, plants, flowers and pictures of the sun offer you little earning potential.  As @Jill_C said, there's too much competition from other talented contributors.  I recommend you find other subjects to photograph that have good commercial interest.  Take multiple exposures at different settings and distances.  Use a tripod for longer exposures to remove motion.  Natural light is usually better than flash.  Edit imperfections if you can in Photoshop or Lightroom.  Submit only your...

I recommend you find other subjects to photograph that have good commercial interest.  Take multiple exposures at different settings and distances.  Use a tripod for longer exposures to remove motion.  Natural light is usually better than flash.  Edit imperfections if you can in Photoshop or Lightroom.  Submit only your best photos to Stock. 

 

Meanwhile, read your Stock Contributor User Guide for more tips.  


Better luck with your next submission. 🙂
