Comments & ID Thoughts
I'm guessing this is a typical House Spider, but have no idea. I am actually researching for a friend who has this spider and seems to have adopted it. Sort of.

A co-worker calls this spider, her…pet spider. Though not really a spider lover, she seems to like having this one around and says once in a while she will throw a stinkbug into it’s web. Strange, but true. She wanted me to research what type it is for her. I don’t mind. I love researching and I’m a curious person who doesn’t mind being educated on things I don’t know anything about. Thank you in advance.
Hi, welcome to Spider ID. 🙂 Your guess is good, this appears to be a Common House Spider (Parasteatoda tepidariorum).
