Mistake in your Basic HTML course driving students crazy and here is the correction

Tell us what’s happening:
You have a wrong link for “relaxing cat” in your course material. You have it as: https://bit.ly/fcc-relaxing-cat
but after some research I found the actual image at the following address

Check it out for yourself. This mistake has probably been driving students crazy for a long time. You need to correct the link.

  **Your code so far**

This link is incorrect

To make it easier ,copy the link and paste it in your code.

The link works, I have not looked into it much but it is possible the bit.ly link points to the very image link you found, as bit.ly is a url shortening service.

If you have entered that link in your console and the correct image is not showing up in the preview, then there is most likely a spelling error. For links I usually copy/paste to avoid these issues.
