We had a cat that would limp coming across the back deck to the house. Took her to the vet. Nothing wrong.

Learned that from the birds, no doubt.

My dogs will do that sometimes, but it’s usually that the $#!@&^@% goats head has come out of their paw and they didn’t notice yet.
Goat’s head comes out of their paws? I should google that. 🤷♀️
Got it, along with why you swear about it.
What’s worse is when it doesn’t fall off until they get in the house and then I find it by stepping on it barefoot.
Yes-DH says they’re worse than Legos!
This one https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tribulus_terrestris for anyone else looking.
Here we have sand burs, though the ground isn’t particularly sandy. DH swears about those, & Corky probably would, too, if she could talk.
Goat’s head. Nasty nasty seed-heads. The plant is also called puncture vine. The very first time I rode my then brand new mountain/city bike, yoncks ago in the late ’80s, I rode on a trail along the river that hadn’t been paved yet. Soon the bike was getting harder and harder to pedal, so I stopped. The rear tire was flat flat flat. What th’?? Well, fck. I had to push-walk the thing two and a half miles back home. Before I got home the front tire was flat, too. Well what the fcking hell???? I loaded it into the back of my truck and drove to the bike shop. That’s when I learned about puncture vine/goat heads. The mechanic pulled out a few spiky heads from the tires. Then he installed heavy-duty tubes, a liner between the tires and the tubes, filled the tubes with some sort of pink gunk that plugs any holes that might get through the liners. Never got a flat from those suckers again.
And yeah, I’d also find them while walking around the house in socks because my poor pup had tracked them in.
