Example: 
Once upon a time there was a Queen who was afraid of cats.  She just didn't like them,  But the princess her daughter really loved cats.  She had cat wallpaper on the walls, a cat bedspread and even a life-like stuffed cat that she played with as a toy.  

One day the princess got tired of playing with the stuffed cat, and found a little grey tabby kitten outside the palace.  She took the kitten and taught it to stay in her bedroom.  Then about a week later the Queen came into the princess' bedroom and saw the grey tabby kitten sleeping on the bed.  She thought it was the toy cat.  But when she tried to pick it up to put on the shelf, she found out that it was a real kitten and it purred at the Queen.  

After that the Queen was not afraid of cats.
