Money Cat from USB fine, but nothing else sticks to bed

Given the supplied files generally work (and I have several cats now), but models I produce from Cura fail - generally not sticking to the bed - is my best bet to compare the GCode between the cat sample and the gcode I am producing?  I presume the top section of the gcode is the most relevant for my problems.  Advice gratefully received!

    I recently got my first printer and had the same issue.  What I found out was that I had the wrong filament size (compatible diameter material) set in the printer nozzle settings in Cura.  The filament size was set to large, so it was not extruding enough filament.

    By the way...
    Recently I had trouble with Cura 3.5 filament diameter. I had "under extrusion" behavior.  Cura used diameter from material definition (I guess), and just ignored machine settings (In my case I have 1.75).  Only setting diameter from the right bar manually to 1.75 solved this issue for me. I don't know is this a bug or just lack of lucky.
