Fine and Full has been re-designed

We’re excited to let ya’ll know that we have updated fineandfull.com to a new design (a modified pre-existing template). It was really time. We’re now on WordPress (moved over from Blogger). We use WordPress a lot for our work, so figured it would be good to use it for our personal blog as well. We’ll hopefully be more inclined to post here more often too.

I still owe all of you a slideshow of New Zealand photos — I haven’t forgotten. Now that the template is updated, I am much more likely to do it.

Anyways, enjoy! (Must go feed the cat; it’s late.)

Cats baffle owners

Fun little cat story on the BBC site, Cat’s daily routine baffles owner, with the lede in:

A cat is baffling his owner by wandering off at night before expecting to be collected by car every morning at exactly the same time and place.

The whole idea of the cat wandering far for treats makes sense, considering Nikita. But, Bernard and I had this cat, Radiance, in Santa Cruz, whom we both would run into at good distances from our place.

I know Bernard used to hang out in this park, and Radiance would just suddenly show up and hang out with him. And, one time I was riding on the bus, and was all the way across town, and saw Radiance walking down the sidewalk!


For those of you who know our cat Nikita, you know she’s been on a diet for a while. Last we measured, she was down from 22lbs to 18lbs (a good feat for a cat). Of course the vet says she should weigh about 10–so there’s a long way to go baby. So this diet she’s been on is high protein, very low carb, wet food (more like a cat’s natural diet). Nikita is obsessed with carbs. She loves anything crunchy and salty (chips, bread crusts, crackers, popcorn, etc.) If we eat any of the above she hovers around us waiting for scraps. Today I accidentally dropped brown sugar on the floor, and she was all over it. Brown sugar? Who would have thought….
