I somehow missed the part that they begin and end with the same letter. I don't feel quite so bad for missing five. Great quiz idea.

Um, no, not in this quiz. But I imagine, Catlover, you could have both: a pussy cat on your pillow, and pussy willow in your garden ;-)

This one is a lot easier than the other, only missed 2 the first time going over it, then saw fluff right away, discard took a few more seconds thinking which letter could fit. Finished with 33 seconds left.
