Well, I don’t see the black spots down the back that are typical of the hickory tussock moth caterpillar but would leave it alone just the same since it otherwise rather resembles it, as that caterpillar can cause a rather nasty allergic reaction in some people.
hey this is so wild ! yesturday morning I found the same white furry caterpillar on a water bowl outside for our cat. my instints were don”t touch it. I gently moved it…I live in clarkston ga. I have never seen a white caterpillar . peace martha
