anyone know what this is?

It's caterpillar season again.  Well at our house anyway.  The bug catcher is home to two wee guys today.  This one is the hairiest (and the fastest).  He and his friend (the wooly bear caterpillar) made a run for it when they were left unattended for a few minutes and we had a bit of a mad time searching the kitchen for them.  I really did not want to step on one of the wee buggers.
