The Cat Who Loved Broccoli

Luca and Naya loved cats. They had six of them.

One day Luca cooked a big pot of broccoli. It was way too much for the two of them. There was a lot left over.

Naya set a plate of broccoli on the floor hoping that the cats would eat it.

"There's no way the cats are going to eat that!" said Luca. "They only like fish, chicken, and their special treat of peanut butter on toast."

Five cats walked by the broccoli and turned up their noses. The sixth cat, Jack, stopped and tried a piece. Then another, and another. He loved it and kept on eating.

When the other cats saw Jack eating the broccoli, they came back to check it out. One by one, they all started eating the broccoli they passed up earlier.

All it took was for Jack to like it, and the others thought they were missing out on something.
