Oh… I was just doing some quick scanning through LJ and the other journals I read, when I read that Socar Myles’ Stella had died. I am so sad about that…I know that sounds strange, since I’ve not met nor corresponded with her, but still. I’m almost in tears right now. Here’s the entry. I think she’s a wonderful writer, I love her artwork, and there are only two people I’ve read online that have ever heard of giant pouched rats, much less owned one. I loved reading about Stella’s antics. I would hate for anything to happen to ours, and they don’t interact with us as much as Stella did with her. (Perhaps because they have each other, and Stella was an “only child” – I don’t know. How very sad.
