Goodreads asked George Mercer:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

George Mercer I got the idea for Fat Cats while working as a park warden and monitoring ecologist in Gulf Islands National Park Reserve where deer are over-running the park ecosystem, reducing the park's biodiversity. Cougars that sometimes show up on the islands are shot by private land owners, a frustrating situation for anyone who wants to see them left to do their thing, preying on deer and helping restore native ecosystems, naturally!
