Cat Claw Found Amidst Infestation of Various Organisms in This Woman’s Home

“What the hell is this?” asks this reader about the two objects pictured below: one a white, sharp-looking thing, and the other a lump of brown material. “They’re all over my house. They’re eating the wood deck. They’re on clothes, on furniture and they seem to bore through anything. They’re on the walls and the ceiling. They leave fuzzy, white, linty substances like fabric, hair and wood.” Based on the photo our sent us, the white object looks like a claw, specifically a cat claw. We do not know if our reader actually owns a cat, but given the fact that she has found holes in her clothing, furniture, and elsewhere, it would make sense that a cat is tearing holes in these objects and leaving the lint and fluff all over the home.

That said, she has also specifically stated that multiple organisms have been found, and that they have also been found on the walls and ceiling, where cats are obviously not able to go. Besides, finding multiple cat claws would be concerning. So, this begs the question of what that orangey-brown lump next to the claw is. To be honest, we have no idea. It does not look like any worm-like organism we know of, or any organism at all that we know of.

What we can say is that if there truly are organisms munching on her wooden deck, clothing, and furniture, then they are likely all different organisms. Organisms that typically eat wood include wood boring beetle larvae, carpenter ants and termites. Organisms that will munch on clothing and furniture (specifically upholstered furniture) include clothes moth larvae and carpet beetle larvae. However, neither of the two objects in the photo look like any of these organisms. In any case, we recommend that our reader give her home a thorough clean. She will want to vacuum her home, launder her clothing (specifically that which is even partially organic in make), sanitize all surfaces, and clean her drains. Doing these things regularly helps prevent a variety of worm-like organisms and insects from entering the home. Likewise, she may want to contact a professional if there truly are organisms boring through the wood, as that is very difficult to take care of oneself.

In conclusion, the white object in the photo looks like a cat claw, and that’s what we think it is. However, we have no idea what the brown thing is. Unfortunately, we are unable to identify the apparent multitude of organisms infesting her home. If she wants specific answers, we recommend that she sends more pictures of the various organisms, or that she takes samples of them to her local county extension office to have someone physically examine them. We hope we were able to help to some degree, and we wish our reader the very best!

  1. IM LOSING MY ISH RIGHT NOW!!! I can’t believe there’s other people going through this! I’ve got the joint pain, face rash, alopecia, the slugs, cat claw, “crumbles” all over the house!!!! Not to mention, sleepless nights and restless days, and medical professionals that think I’m delusional!! I literally screen shot this entire conversation and sent it to everyone I know that I’ve told n agree with the doctors. I emailed Vanessa and Nicole, but I didn’t have Sandra’s info…we need to establish a lil community and expand, I’m sure do dine out there has got to know whether the hell is going on!! I need answers! Have you guys tried anti parasitic meds ? I had permethrin cream=work for a while on the rash , but it came back. And I’m taking ivermectin every week for 5 weeks now. I don’t notice a difference—

  2. Valerie. I’m exhausted from the same thing. It’s everywhere. I have an appointment today and I don’t even know if I should bring it up cuz of all the doctors that thought I was crazy. Although my primary does believe e me somewhat. I gave him a lot of larva samples from my body Monday. Hopefully I will see an specialat mcv. Email me [email protected]. I’m so done w this shit.

  3. Valerie…OMG, THANK YOU -THANK YOU -THANK YOU…. FINALLY! I really appreciate your courage to put it out there. Ditto Kiddo. I could have written your comment. Anyone else have this PLEASE lets talk. We need to stick together. After reading your comment I ran downstairs to my husband and insisted he read it because he has accused me of having parasitic psychosis. Wonder if anyone who is diagnosed with parasitic psychosis was also tested for toxoplasmosis.

    Also, wondering where you are located? I am in Cambria County Pennsylvania area and I was beginning to wonder if a parasitic infection is possible in our tap water…. before I get too crazy…id like to talk to you in private.

  4. We too find the split cat claw type things all over our carpets. Then slug type ? creatures in the drain or near water. Also the get into EVERYTHING from lint, rust, clothing, and food. This all started about a year ago right after my mother passed and I started breaking out in a horrible rash and these things literally soften your skin to the point of almost “dissolving” it to make it habitable for them to invade. As crazy as it sounds, we are pulling slug/snail creatures out of our poop, out of our skin, and also live in my gums and teeth which are now jacked. BTW-they disguise themselves as a scab but the scab itself is alive. I know because I was saving samples (for the doctors to NOT want to see) and these little Hellions stayed alive in liquid past 4 days!!! Heat nor freezing does not kill them. These things are tough and ruthless. Mine and my son’s health took a nosedive and is at its worst since this began a year ago last May. Our joints pop out of place, legs and ankles swell, I’m scarred all to Hell from still pulling these creatures out if the wounds they create, my blood was so sticky and black from whatever enzyme the secrete and are stealing from me, my hair is falling out, they have wrecked my teeth and gotten under my gums and inside lip too. NOBODY will help us or listen!!! I’ve been suffering with this for over a year now and I. Too have basically given up and prepared for the worst. That’s how sickly and fatigued I ALWAYS am. When I found out how they do their parasite testing simply using their eyes and a smidge of a smear (why do we give them all that poop to only take a smear?) I was pissed because they said nothing is there and we hand picked these suckers out just to be sure!!! How the hell would anyone find anything doing it like that??? I’m so sick of this crap and I 10000% believe that there’s something nefarious and strange going on here. I just don’t believe that these people are all that blind to all of us.
    *AT THE RISK OF BEING LABELED EVEN CRAZIER* WORD OF ADVICE TO EVERYONE, START LOOKING AT YOUR FOOD AND I DO MEAN EVERYTHING!!! But once you see your food doesn’t seem quite right, you can’t unsee it. I have found these weird things in brand new unopened packaged food. I have noticed these things in literally every little thing. Well I am too the point if buying the animal albenzedole at my local Farm and Fleet because they aren’t going to help us. Sit back and watch how many more cases we start seeing on here. I say we ban together and sue the crap out of these worthless POS “doctors”. 2 ER trips, 3 Convenient Care trips, 3 dermatology appointments, and 1 entirely different hospital ER trip. It is an effing joke. Let’s turn the tables on them…. Power in numbers people. Praying for each and every one of you. Know you AREN’T crazy and you AREN’T alone.
