Okay, so she’s not really a Grateful Dead Bear, but her color reminded me of those iconic bears, hence the nickname. I gave her to Major on January 11, 2015. Here are her pre-destruction pics:
He got the stuffing out of her body that very same day:
Here he is with his conquest:
Despite removing all of the stuffing out of the body, Major continued to play a lot with Green Bear. This was by far one of his favorite toys. He's always had trouble getting the stuffing out of toys' heads; he just can't seem to finesse it out. However, on January 15, he busted into Green Bear's head:
Even after de-stuffing her head, he continued to play with her a lot. She was good for throwing and playing tug-of-war. Some time during the week of January 26, he pulled off one of her legs while we were playing tug-of-war. I didn't take a picture at the time because I was sick that week. After that, he continued to play with her, and sometimes with just her leg. Hilariously, the cat sometimes played with her torn-off leg as well. Here is the leg before I threw it away:
And here is all of Green Grateful Dead Bear before I threw her away on February 11:
I bought her for $2.50 at a major pet store retailer. She lasted only one month, but she was well worth the money because Major absolutely loved her.
