Comments & ID Thoughts

It looks like the Eastern Parson Spider. It was in our home - the cat found it crawling around. I'm wondering if it is poisonous. I will attempt to release it outside, in the forest.

Pretty sure this is an Eastern Parson Spider. I find them in my home quite often and just relocate them outside. Their pretty docile but they’re fast and skittish. Someone will let you know for sure before too long.
