Cat face spider

It's almost Halloween, and I guess that means it's time for the creepy crawly things to come out of hiding.

We found this tonight on the carpet in the living room, among Lachlan's legos. While he was playing with them...

She's a cat face spider, so named because of the shape and coloring of her abdomen, which is supposed to resemble a cat's face (looks more like the face of a rat or weasel to me).

They are supposed to be harmless to humans and an extremely beneficial enemy of many garden insects. So she'll be left to live another day. But in another location on this property.
