It was in fact on babble where I read oldgoat's response. In part, he said, "She was one of the first babblers I met in real life back in the very early days, and we'd get together periodically.  Coincidentally, she moved to Oshawa and lived about a dozen houses down from me.  I saw less of her then as she had become over the last years extremely reclusive, so I respected her privacy but always sort of worried."

I expect, although I don't know for sure, that her family would have seen to the kitties. As they would be the ones dealing with her belongings etc., I imagine they would make sure the cats were taken care of.


Her younger brother, Arthur, wrote this on her Facebook page:
____________________________


A wonderful sister, a true friend and a consummate literary professional. Susan's sudden passing leaves all those closest to her struggling to find the right words. But in the dedications of her compatriots online at rabble.ca, babble.ca and the much-missed pogge.ca, and right here of course, we are consoled realizing how many lives she touched, both virtually and in person, with that joyous smile and laughing voice. Thanks from all of us.

Frank (aka oldgoat) had also lost touch with her, I believe. There were so many different threads running on so many different Facebook pages that I'm having trouble finding his comment. I'll keep looking.

I have no idea how on earth I can find out whether the surviving cats are safe and happy. I'm really concerned about this (obviously skdadl would have been as well).


 I've been wondering this as well.

The only one who *might* have any knowledge about this would be oldgoat.  Do you have any way of getting in touch with him?

A few blog posts are up about skdadl and pogge; Cathie's post has a brief comment from 900ft - I think someone was asking about her a while ago:

I saw the comment, Holly. I had been asking after her and I left a message on her last post at Of Gods and Monsters (her blog site).

Susan/skdadl took to twitter so swiftly and with so much passion that I was surprised she abandoned it along with all other internet activity when she moved. I always hoped it was a temporary reprieve - a chance to settle into her new home. The fact that she let Robin/pogge change the setting on her Facebook page just last summer felt like her return might be a possibility - if not, why not kill the page.

Pogge's last two tweets were to promote the lovely Alison's blog posts on Creekside (something that he did regularly it would seem). Seems so odd to see those last posts so shortly before his death. He died peacefully in a hospital according to the brief obit notice. It's hard to tell whether he was ill for awhile or not. Still, that must have been such a blow to Susan.

Inexpressibly sad to hear about both of them.  I always regretted skdadl's abrupt departure from here.
She was on twitter a lot for a while, then in 2011 left the internet completely, when she moved.

Terrible to hear that about pogge.  And he was the person we knew who was closest to skdadl.  That explains why his web site was still down.
