Merle is through with the fast-paced life in the business world. He made this decision after getting very worked up over smudged up ink on a very important document. He started growling like a savage bear and pouncing around the office inspecting everyone's pen cup to find the guilty ink-smudger-upper. When he discovered that he, himself, was the ink-smudger-upper he felt like a ninny. He quit his job, and immediately went out and enjoyed a piece of honey cake and hot cocoa. He now leads a very soft and gentle existence. He sells cotton candy on a busy street corner to make money to buy honey cakes and support his cats, and in his free time he sews all his old business ties into quilts for people who don't have warm blankets. He does all of these things in his bear suit to remind him of his previous, ridiculous ways.
Merle is off to Chicago for Oh No! Doom's Soft Served Plush show opening December 11th. Go to it and give Merle a snuggle.
