so one of the main anatomy guides i use are skeletal ones. this helps to get you familiarized with the way the feline anatomy works and is structured. (don't have a pic, i'm sorry. google "feline skeletal anatomy") i recommend just practicing drawing a skeleton, or forming guidelines from it. make things you'll understand, and don't try to copy other's guidelines because they will not make sense. for the muzzle, i recommend learning the skull structure. i couldn't find a picture for reference that would let me link, but just google something like "domestic cat skull" and you'll get what you need. make sure it is the correct skull for the type of feline you're drawing! finally, another important anatomy type to learn is the muscular. the muscular system (combined w/the skeletal system) allows you to understand what is physically possible and what is not, and how the appendages of the feline turn and work, their limits, etc. again, i can't link anything specific because i'm on mobile and not much is allowed :c but, just google "feline muscular system", and voilà! tons upon tons of learning material.
if you wish i can pm you and give you step by step guides, of course not definitive guidelines because everyone's brain registers these things differently and you have to use what's best suited for you! but i would be more than happy to help out

Sounds good, but I can't really stand to look at skeletons so maybe I'll look at pictures of cats? Maybe take a pic or two of my cat. Know how to draw a snout when the cat is looking forward? That's my main problem.

I agree with looking at the skeletal and muscle systems of cats, as that could help you figure out their structure. Also, with the fur, figure out which way you want the wind to be blowing, and slightly bend the shape of the fur in that direction. I think it gives the fur a better look then just sticking it up in random directions. ^^
