1.9 Challenge Time: I don't see your constructor, is there a '__construct' function?

        class Cat {
            public $isAlive = true;
            public $numLegs = 4;
            public $name;

            public function __contruct($name) {
                $this->name = $name;

            public function meow() {
                return "Meow Meow";

        $cat1 = new Cat("CodeCat");
            echo $cat1->meow();

Yes....Yes there is.

Someone mind telling me what i'm missing here?

Hi there,

Try refreshing your page, the cache or using a different web browser - your code is passing.

The following errors are things I caught after reading the lesson.

  1. You accidentally misspelled construct

    public function __contruct($name) {

  2. You used "Meow Meow" while the lesson asks for "Meow meow"

Sometimes these lessons are really strict about how we spell things, but in this case, I used your exact code and it's letting me pass. I'm unsure why, but I'm about 90% sure it's a browser problem at this point.

What you can learn from this though, is to make sure you are catching your self in those little mistakes. It's always the smallest things that give us headaches after you write a few hundred lines of code, lol.

Let me know how it goes!
