Help me improve this shot

Hi, A couple of weeks back i purchases a Groupon discounted canvas print. Yesterday i took a photo i would like to print but id like some processing help to make it the best it can be for the canvas. I will be using PS CS5

Here is the shot

Is it worth trying to blur the whole background and remove the shadows from the bars on the tigers face? if so what is the best way - clone and heal?

The tiger has a lump of some kind above its eye should I try to remove this?

Anything else to improve the photo?

Thanks for any advice
