Like I said before, Molly and Jem have gradually gotten closer in proximity.

In the above shot, Jem could smell her, but couldn’t figure out where the cat was. Molly’s shiny yellow eye kept sharp vigilance.

Again, Jem is on her scent, with Molly’s shiny eye on the lookout.

A brief encounter! Three times Jem got slightly closer in the meeting, and three times Molly hissed and scratched. Jem has not be deterred.

Late at night when both were sleepy, Ben brought them together to see what would happen. Not much of a surprise – Jem’s squirming and Molly’s recoiling from a scratch in this photo.
