He does look like one! Behaviour, too. He kept turning every time I moved to keep an eye on me - which is why I got such good shots. LOL
I am, though, really glad he didn't jump me.

Yea, even though I like spiders, I don't want them jumping on me, even touching me, creepy. If it's any consolation WS, my cat hunts & eat moths.

Yep, just a little old jumping spider. Be warned, they WILL jump on you if you pressure them. Aggressive little buggers. I had one that lived under the headlight of my car. Every time I parked somewhere, he would crawl out and "stand guard" watching anybody that walked too close.

Oh! Just be careful with cats and moths, there's something in/on a moth that can make cats very sick....I used to live near an apple orchard and each spring there would be thousands of moths (like cover your whole porch and windows if you left a light on at night!) and the cats would eat the moths and......die

No such luck, my cat has been doing it for years, he's 12 & healthy much to my hubby's chagrin.

Maybe he hasn't eaten enough of them........the cats that died by the orchards had a whole buffet of moths.....when you walked outside they'd be crunching under your shoes.....
