The flash would be the main source and obviously shutter speed would depend on the individual environment
All I was saying was to keep some ambient light
The challenge with ambient light and flash is the ambient light can cause some blur. If the flash is bounced correctly it should look relatively natural. I understand what you are getting at, but you just have to be careful when mixing ambient light and flash when shooting fast moving subjects.

So is it better to not let ambient in and have a dark or black background?
When indoors, a well bounced flash can create the illusion of ambient light. Depends on the room I guess.

Thank you very much William
Your steps did it for me. I tried my flash just to see the overall photo and i liked it. I need to practice more I think.
Great shots by the way and beautiful cats. Can you tell us your PP for the second shot. And what case of AF did you use and which AF point selection did you use?
Thanks for the compliments. Those shots have little PP. Just white balance adjustment and whatever default sharpening happens in Lightroom.
As for AF settings (I am still learning the 5D3 af myself so don't take these as the gospel) I used "case 6" but I moved the tracking sensitivity one to the left. I also have both AI servo image priority on focus, not speed. As for what points I used, I use the group setting where you get 9-12 points. I find this is useful for fast moving subjects. I am sure someone more skilled than I can get away with just one tho
