Can't get the while to work or the catch.

Thanks in advance.

Program.cs
using System;

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    class Program
    {
        static void Main()
        {
                 string input = Console.ReadLine();
                 try
                 {   
                 Console.Write("Enter the number of times to print \"Yay!\": . You must enter a whole number.");
                 }



                 int count = int.Parse(input);
                 int i = 0;
                 while(i < count)
                 {
                 Console.WriteLine("Yay!");
                 i += 1; 
                                      catch (Exception)
                 {
                 Console.WriteLine("You must enter a whole number.");        
                 }
                 }


        }
    }

For a "try" to be effective, the block following it must enclose the code that might case an exception, which in this case would be the "int.Parse".

Also, the "catch" should immediately follow the "try" block.
