Every Spring we get these stringy things in our yard.
I’m pretty sure that they come from our oak tree and I think they are called catkins, but don’t quote me on that.
What I do know is that they are a BIG mess and they get stuck everywhere on Sherman and Leroy and they clog my drain on the patio.
If they are stuck on them then they track them through the house on my carpet, in my vents, in my bed and just about anywhere they go.
They kind of gross me out because they remind me of worms.
I’ve been doing my best to try and get them picked up every time I got outside but we had a pretty windy weekend and they were just literally flying off the tree and the dogs were doing just a fine job sweeping them up with their fur.
It was like their fur was velcro for these stringy things.
My house is messy enough. I don’t really need stringy things stuck on my dogs that look like worms, to make it even worse.
