Last night a fairly large spider came wandering across the carpet in @Eebit's basement. He was unwilling to do anything about it and thrust the task onto me. Unwilling to kill it, of course, I placed a bowl over it. At some point I named it Jim. Jim remained under the bowl until a brief moment of respite from the yellow rectangular prison today. Current options for Jim: Be placed in a terrarium with a plant named Felix Potential sacrifice to the cats (not sure if they would actually eat it) Some sort of Charlotte's Web homage We will keep you all posted.
