Yep, thats right I have a cute cuddly little spider living on my desk, some times he comes down from his hiding place to say hi. I am thinking of making him my pet. of course I would not cage him but maybe give him a name and talk baby talk to him. "does my wittle cody wody want to see his mommy?' huh huh?? What do you think? I'm not allowed to have regular pets but no one said i cant have a spider pet. Should I keep him or let him outside to vbe free? Don't tell me to kill him because I already love the little thing.

Keep him, I know I would. We get tons of spiders in our house, I just leave them where they are, they are happy there, I think. Anyway if a spider lives there he must not want to go outside, and he wants to be with you. =)

If you feed it, maybe he will want to get closer to you. Maybe even play with you on your desk. =P

if it does not bother you just leave it there and let it live life.. just like what you said you could also make it as a pet or just a friend, when you'r stressed at work try talking to it about the problem and it will make you feel better even it is not talking back of course be afraid when it talks remember it's a spider.. have a nice day.. -zedrick_11-

I think you should be letting it outside to be free instead of letting it inside which can cause a beautiful and unwanted web for you and for others too, so although loving it you should let it go free.

and why would I not want a beautiful web in my house? It could be a decoration like a picture on the wall.

Hiya Princess, providing he's not poisonous let him stay! I positively encourage spiders into my house, I let them stay rent free, on proviso that they feast their tiny little eyes out on the other bugs that I loathe, their contract is to eat the nasty flies and other bugs that invade my home. I like spiders and I would never harm one, there ain't many bugs that I like and the spider is definitely a friend to Wolfie. I think you should name him if you haven't already.

Oh my God! You are crazy! Spiders are disgusting and I would of killed it the first time I saw it! This creeps me out! Spiders aren't pets and I wish they would stop coming into my apartment! If I didn't set up traps for spiders I would see more then I do! Spiders are truly disgusting,creepy,ugly and don't deserve to live!

It all depends on your perspective. i see a spider as part of Gods creations, A spider is part of the food chain and without them the whole cycle of life would be out of whack. Also beauty is in the eye of the beholder and i think my spider is lovely.

But you must make sure he has enough to eat and drink. Maybe he settled there on your desk accidentally by mistake. If he can't catch an insect to eat, he will starve. Poor thing! Help him out to the nature, will you?

If he appears to be thriving, and if he doesn't bother you, I don't see why you couldn't just leave him alone. I would probably put him outside myself...

Its better to just leave it there or make a house for him. Spiders just like to chill.

Well if it seems like there isnt much insects for him it indoors or at your house. It would be best for him to let him go and release him outside. So that he cant more and live longer. Im sure he will be happy with that.
