Calling all reusable cup users.

The cups that we are all using should have a lifespan of at least 10 years. I know the Keeper says 10, and though the silicone cups mostly don't give specific numbers, medical grade silicone is used in permanently implanted internal devices, and as a material is supposed to last indefinitely.

So I was wondering, those who have had to replace a cup for reasons other than to try a different kind of cup, why did you have to?

I know some have had theirs stolen, some accidentally flushed, some were confiscated by pets and mangled beyond recognition, and of course there's the manufacturer's defects like the splitting color Lady Cups...

So, what was the cause of death for your cups? Natural or foul play? Has anyone had a cup die of age-related defects? If so, which cup was it and what happened? How long did it take for your cup to need replacing?
