News from my granddaughter.

After the workshop, my granddaughter told me she had to tell me something, but that I should keep it from my daughter until she gathered strenght to tell her. Jeezz! I thought. The girl is pregnant. Not a great deal anyway as she is about to finish her studies, is 25 years old and who am I to say anything when I had my first before my 19th birthday. She then took her cellphone and showed me the ugliest kitten I have ever seen. I am about to adopt him, she told me. He will be your greatgrandson. He has a genetic problem so he has no hair and noone wants him. In fact, the cat looked more like a newborn mouse than like a lovely kitten. Carolina then explained to me that had done her math. She would stop buying sushi (her luxury when she was depressed) and would try to stop smoking (I suppose that she´ll visit her mother more often to steal my daughter´s ciggies). She would start saving money to get a genetic examination for the cat (the name is Popi). I didn´t say OMG! Anyway, it was better than her having an unwanted pregnancy. I suppose that I will have to put up with my greatgrandcat. I´m already invited to meet him, provided I bring some cat food as a gift. As I told Leticia today, she told me that Carolina should have a cat shower

You are too serious and prejudicing your granddaughter. If she knows you have a prejudice against her, imagine what she would say to you. Become wiser and have positive thoughts is better to keep your relationship with your family. Have a nice day!

@marguicha If I am not misread, you think that your granddaughter was pregnant. If I am wrong, I apologize.

@srisahara Anything can happen and I had that fleeting thought when she swore me to secrecy. Not that it bothered me. I am not at all prejudiced. That´s why your words amazed me.

Lol - fancy being great grandmother to a cat. Good for your granddaughter for giving the cat a home, and being prepared to spend money to have the kitten examined. I hope it works out ok.

I hope so too. I confess I worry more about my granddaughter than about the cat. She wants to continue her studies elsewhere and she will not be able to take the cat with her.

@marguicha Oh, perhaps she hasn't thought it through properly. Would she expect you to look after it if she did move away?

@jaboUK Nope! I could help if it was a dog. But my daughter has a cat of her own and gives board to a cat in the neighborhood. I´m sure She´ll end up with Popi

No, she isn´t. When I asked her, she replied aw, granma!!! So I had to say that if she wanted a baby cat, maybe she was also looking for a baby. No way, she said, do you think I´m dumb? I wonder if she thinks I was dumb when I had his mom. I did not think so and I have never repented of it

Wow, that sounds like a needy little kitty. It sounds like she is taking her role as cat parent very seriously.

Oh it sounds like she has a good heart.Having the kitty may help with the depression and eliminate the need for the sushi and cigs.

I think that she is just stressed because it is her last year in her career and she has had practice and a thesis. But I did tell her that I could teach her how to make sushi. It´s easy and inexpensive.
