Looks a bit like Orgyia but it has only three "brushes".

Orgyia detrita
Should be a fourth brush in front but must have rubbed off

Moved & Thanks
Moved from ID Request.

Fir Tussock Moth Cat
It must have been damaged somehow or the last molt went awry. We can see a pale spot on the abdominal segment, where the first brush should be. (weird) --- Orgyia detrita
