Weed ID please!

mnkyhwiiMay 9, 2009

Hi all, this weed has popped up in my yard and garden. it has thorns on the stem and underside of the leaves, including veins. the bottom of the leaves are slightly fuzzy. please help! i don't want this to spread, but i don't want it to be something poisonous either.

the description does seem to fit. though i haven't let it grow long enough to see any flowerings or fruit. thank you very much. good to know as it can be poisonous to mammals and we have cats.
