Are y’all familiar with dog fennel weed? It’s common in habitats where the soil has been severely disturbed, burned areas, & clear-cuts locales. 
Here is a wee bit of info on it
Dogfennel (Eupatorium capillifolium) is an aggressive native perennial found throughout much of the Southeast. Dogfennel is particularly troublesome in unimproved or overgrazed pastures where it adds to the decline of forage yield and quality. Although dogfennel is generally considered to be only unsightly, research has shown that significant bahiagrass yield loss will be observed when dogfennel infestations are not removed prior to July 1. Cattle do not normally feed on dogfennel, but they may eat it when more suitable forages are lacking. However, the leaves contain low levels of the toxin tremitol, which causes dehydration when ingested by cattle. Dogfennel is currently the number one most commonly occurring pasture weed in Florida.
Some people & animals find the aroma pleasant, but Mom says it STINKS!
Dad has been out weed whacking our endless supply of dog fennel.
I Kat find it intoxicating

Kraft Kat!!
Note from Mom of Kat:
Kat doesn’t enjoy catnip as much as he does fennel smell.  Kat was never in direct contact with the fennel, just Dad’s stinky shoes!

Ooooooh my cats, Kat, you are loving in Dad’s dog fennel weed shoes!
I hope you take a good bath before you sleep with mom. You don’t want to be sleeping in the dog house. If we have that fragrant weed, we don’t know it.
Thank you for the precious video.
Love Auntie
