If you hold a 35mm camera upside-down, you can brace it against your forehead for additional steadiness. Then 1/15 becomes feasible with a 50mm or wider lens. Add to that the usual tricks of bracing yourself against a wall or armrest (if sitting), and you might find yourself trying 1/8 second. But as a prior poster said, that won't work for cats or kids that are constantly moving.
