Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Lilit fixes the house, makes peace with her grandmother, and enhances her work reputation all at the same time. Oh and she cheers up the cat too.

Con: So how did the cat order all those things? I get that it was ordering so it could play with the drones, and presumably the actual deliveries came from drones it didn’t reach in time, but how could it place orders at all?

The grandmother is extremely annoying. It’s not credible that Lilit would want to spend time with her.
