Just want to know what this is - our cat was trying "to make friends " with it in our living room.

I think it is a fishing spider in the genus Dolomedes…it may be Dolomedes scriptus….perhaps…..because the W shapes on the abdomen are lined in white….

Or D. tenebrosus as that species has orange bands on its legs
