Html course step 15

First, thanks very much for making this project and web site accessible for us as screenreader users to be able to learn coding. I am worried that the reason my code might be wrong could be because of spacing or something visual I’m not picking up, but I think it’s probably my code and that I’m getting more and more confused.
The forum post rules won’t allow me to paste in all the combinations and code I want to show I’ve tried,
I’ve been stuck for half a day on this step, searched google and even read the free code camp news article, typed in the answer, of course just altering the wikipedia link to the address given in the assignment, trying different combinations that I thought would pass, and, since none of them do, I’m getting more and more confused. The one line hint isn’t helping.
Here are some things I’ve tried.
<a href=""<img src="" alt="A cute orange cat lying on its back."></a>
That didn’t work, but it won’t allow me to post other combinations of code I’ve tried, but I’ve been stuck on this step for ages.

I’ve edited your code for readability. When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (').

Please use the help button so we get all of your code and a link to the challenge in the post.

You must use a valid opening anchor tag. Every tag must have < and >
