This fuzzy thing was by our front door all day. We live in Houston Texas. The weather has been in the 90s with some humidity and we’ve had rain on and off. The picture I’m attaching was taken around 3pm but my husband said he saw it earlier.
We are thinking its a moth, but we are not bug enthusiasts. My dog likes to stalk house flies.

This is a Southern Flannel Moth, also called a Puss Caterpillar Moth, Megalopyge opercularis. Many folks in the South are more familiar with the stinging caterpillar which is known as an Asp.
Thanks Daniel! I had everyone on Facebook stumped. Have a good day!
