seeds. CJ is a magnet for them - if there are any around, he will bring
them in .. any kind, not just the burrs, any kind that will stick in cat
hair. Fleagor is another longhair who brings them in. Avery got into a
bunch of the tiny round ones a couple of days ago, and cleaned a hundred
or so of them out of his fur onto the towel covering my kitchen chair - I
combed the rest of them out myself, but the ones on the chair had to be
picked out one by one.
The roving longhairs (CJ and Fleagor) also bring in a lot of sticky bits
of Eastern Red Cedar twigs.
