When the baby raccoon Calvin finds in the woods dies, Calvin's mother is seen mourning the raccoon's passing with Hobbes (in stuffed animal form), then commenting on how broken up she must be to do so;
At least once reference is made to Hobbes having to go through the washer and dryer occasionally, and to the effect that this has on Hobbes;
And finally, in one strip Hobbes gets a rip from Calvin's rough-housing which has to be sewn up by Calvin's mother.

That only establishes that everyone else views him as a stuffed animal, not that he is a stuffed animal.

Remember reality is what we percieve it to be.
