Comments & ID Thoughts

My 9 month old kitten found this spider in the bathroom in front of the sink cabinet she was not playing with it like she would any other bug it's a size of a tablespoon and it reared up on the back of its eight legs it looks like four eyes is furry and very aggressive I'm in North Texas Dallas area we've had heavy rain. For a cat not to play with a bug tells me she had a issue with this particular bog a sense that something was wrong know she was not bit. What is this thing? I still have it alive in a tupperware bowl with a lid when it sees my finger it rears up.
