No, I'm one of the weirdos who like spiders. And the fact that they eat other bugs just endears them to me more

Not if they are new and not in the way; I remove old ones that are covered in dust.

No, I'm way too terrified that if I knock down a spider web the spider will fall on me. Or will fly down and attack me. I give them a very, very wide berth.

I am very fond of spiders. They're spinners, they're weavers, they're tricksters, they're excellent pest control, they remind me that femininity does equal bad-ass, and that's just to get started. I'm happy to see them in my living space, but their whims of web placement don't always match my whims of walking through a door, or through the woods, or hanging laundry on the line. Sorry spiders.

The less I can interact with spiders, the better they can do their job of killing the bugs I want to interact with even less.

there's one living about the cat food and it's nice because it catches things attracted to the cat food

hm too bad I can't train a spider to only let large cat eat a certain amount per day

Nope. Touching a spider web sends signals to all nearby spiders that someone is attacking their livelihood and stimulates them to go into attack-kill mode. All of them with a 20m radius. I'm sure this is better explained somewhere in the internet, where I must've read it to being with. And it feels legit. So no, thanks.
