Should rename to "You Like Me, Not My Niece" because her "daughter" is actually her niece.

Biologically, sure, but she still raised her since she was little. Even calls her mom. So for all intents and purposes they are mother and child.

One of my favorite New Yorker cartoons: A man arrives in heaven, and he looks nervously and confused at a giant throne on which is seated a giant housecat, which says with a smile, "What were you expecting?"

Glad for those who want to read the original Vivy novel.

Sounds like an interesting age-gap romcom...

“Let us teach the humans about the horror of cats!” They may seem cute and cuddly (okay, they definitely are), but this secret society of cats is up to no good! Under the direction of the purple-caped General, The Evil Secret Society of Cats schemes against humanity

Sounds familiar

And to drive the point home further, the Japanese title has "alternate reading" katakana of "mama" by the kanji for "watashi" [me], making the title "You Like Me (Mama), Not My Daughter?!". Using "niece" in the title instead would definitely go against the author's intentions.

The male lead also calls her "Ayako-mama" in childhood flashbacks.
