...honestly, he really does like it when its cooked. however, the other day he was in the kitchen begging me for food before dinner was ready, so i gave him a piece of uncooked broccoli. a few minutes later i saw him empty handed and was quite impressed that he actually ate it! of course, it took me a bit longer to find where he had decided to dispose of it. i wonder what other sorts of hiding places he's been using to house his unwanted snacks?
