Help my Cat image link keeps giving me an error

Tell us what’s happening:
Describe your issue in detail here.
I am trying to make this image linkable but I keep getting the error - and the code seems to be working - what am I doing wrong?

Your anchor (a) element should have a closing tag. Closing tags have a / just after the < character.

  **Your code so far**
   <main>
  <h2>Cat Photos</h2>

You have to put the end tag after the alt and its value.
