King Nine, however, will not return.

@  Bass X0 : (09 July 2020 - 05:05 PM)

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

WHATAMIFIGHTINGFOOOOOOOOARRGH

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

He's sweeter than the average bear.

Have any of you had your cat's teeth cleaned?  I've heard of dogs having cleanings, but not cats.

Back in the late 80’s, I had the teeth of my siamese Samantha cleaned. This was on the recommendation of the vet and in the end was not a pleasant experience for any of us. Sammie was overweight and that wasn’t taken fully into account when she came out of the anesthesia. Poor thing was sluggish for a few days afterward, puked up bile the night we brought her home was so tired she from the ordeal that when she needed to go to the litter box she didn’t even try to get up and whizzed all over the chair she was sleeping on. While technology has come a considerable ways since then, I vowed to never put another cat through that again unless it was required.

(My mom can laugh about Sammie and her accident now. She says that the poor cat was dreaming of being in a peeing for distance contest and shooting to win!)

I'm trying to come to grips with my little one's mortality.  I'm hopeful she improves with the new medication her vet is putting her on, but I'm also realistic about what I can expect.  I never thought I could lose her like this when I assumed I would have another 5 to 10 years with her.  I hope I'm just over reacting and she returns to normal, but even then, normal for her is never going to be 10 more years.

If you don't mind me asking, what's her diagnosis?

One of my old cats had health issues for most of her life. Gave us at least 3 times when I was sure that was it. Currently we have one cats with Feline Aids, so we have to be extra vigilant with her.

6 months ago I took my 11 year old cat in for a routine visit and they discovered she had a heart murmur.  They recommended she see a specialist for a echocardiogram, and they diagnosed her with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is a thickening of the left ventricle.  They weren't too concerned about it because her other vitals were normal, but they wanted to see her again for a followup in 9 months.  Fast forward to now--I've been noticing she's having trouble seeing, and while I wasn't really worried about it because she otherwise is behaving normally and getting around, I wanted to take her to the vet to see if it was something they could treat.  Turns out her blood pressure is sky high and her heart murmur is much worse.  She is now effectively blind due to damage from high blood pressure.  They prescribed bp medication (atenolol) and I made an appointment to see the cardiologist again.  The vet said her sight may return when her bp goes down, but she didn't seem to be very hopeful that the damage isn't permanent.  I feel terrible because I waited to make the vet appointment instead of taking her in the moment I realized something was off.  Her vision is completely gone now, and her activity level is low.  I think about her quality of life since she can no longer see to do normal kitty things.  And if there is damage to her eyes, I don't know what else might have been affected.  For the moment she is eating and drinking normally, but I'm still worried sick.  I couldn't get her in to see the cardiologist until next week, but for now I started her on the medication.  I can't stand the thought of losing her--she means everything to me.

This is Maggie. Less than a hour ago, she crossed the rainbow bridge.

 

Four years ago (about.), she had an acute kidney something something. Long story short: dehydration led to something in her kidneys hugging up, which made her stop eating and stop wanting to eat. The Irony was, the solution was eating. We spent three long weeks force feeding her four times a day to rebuild her weight, her strength, and it paid off. The day we stopped forcing her to eat, it was like a switch was flipped and our old maggie was back.

 

Five days ago, she refused her ham at lunch time. Four days ago, we realized she had lost some weight and had been throwing up bile. Three days ago, we made a vet appointment for next friday and began force feeding her again. This morning, she had pushed back up everything we had put into her stomach before bed last night after exactly one good day where she kept everything. We made an emergency vet visit and brought her in today. Well, the acute kidney something something had become chronic. On top of which the duct between kidneys and bladder was obstructed, and the kidney damage from last time had led to diabetes.

 

We could have gone the route of surgery and pills... but the quality of life wouldn't be there. She was just going to go through the whole not eating thing over and over and over again.

 

Goodbye maggie. I love you, I will always miss you.


Per Nick Nemesis's Suggestion: I hate everything.
