Emily and Spike are sweethearts, I am pleased to say. Emily was an abandoned kitten 13 years ago and we took her in, and she was Sammy's (our cat who died in April) pal and sister. Spike was abandoned at age 3 or thereabouts, last spring, and moved in with us this summer. Emily was mad at first, but he is so friendly and playful she took to him. In a big way. This is one of those May-December older woman type romances, they are so cute, full of cat kisses all day long.
