"Half Kitten, Half Duckling" by Alexander

Once the kitten saw the duckling eat the corn, it went over to eat some, too. When it took a small morsel of corn into its mouth, it hated the corn so much that it detested the thought of any vegetable ever grown. It later got used to the corn, and started to eat more. After eating, it felt sick and threw up.

The kitten saw the ducklings go into the pond. It too, went in. It hated having to touch the water but now found itself falling into the pond. It nearly drowned but it managed to run back to the shore. When it did, it dried off by the nearest tree.
