Survival of the Fittest

I am sort of having a mental block at the moment.

Two reports due within the next 24 hours (actually one is overdue) and I am still not even half way done through my research.

Moments like this make me wish that I don't have to worry about food, bills, and whatever necessities so I can just lie around, relaxing and read fiction to fill up the time.

Not the kind of fiction people create to serve as in real life events but actual mind-blowing totally unreal fantasy fiction like Star Wars, Star Trek, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs kind of fiction.

I mean the first type of fiction is just lies made to seem real to attack others that some people actually fall for it while the second fiction is too unreal that everyone knows it is untrue without doing any kind of further research than the obvious.

I wonder whether it pays well to do the first kind of fiction since so many people are doing it.

In any case, TaoTao has been poorly and is currently on medication.

I am still slightly worried for him despite his excellent appetite because he may overeat and I am letting him do so because the vet told me to make sure he has a good appetite.

He has gained so much of his old weight back that I hope I won't be accused of letting a cat become obese.

The problem with TaoTao is, he just eats, sleeps and sits around all the time and hides under the table instead of being out there playing in the sun and hunting birds and mice like he used to.

The illness had affected his confidence so bad that he was startled and ran in fright when a gecko fell on him instead of pouncing on it like he would have had previously.

That's another thing to worry about, to restore the confidence of my kitty.

He used to be such an excellent hunter that he had often gifted me with mice, birds and lizards in the past then waited by his food bowl for his food hoping for his favorite "pouch" of mackerel that I normal treat him with when he is being a good kitty.

Now he doesn't saunter but sprints with his tail down when he moves from one hiding place to another for fear of being attacked or something.

I guess that's why nature is unforgiving for the weak and the term "survival of the fittest" was coined to reflect this.

To think that that is all I have to worry about is kind of empowering, I am glad I opted to being unemployed.  So I guess it's back to the reports and the research.
