Black Widows, followup

So, there is a spider in my closet again (after some people speculated the displaced spiders may return to the closet, I left it and checked again today).

I got some pictures this time.

Question: is this a black widow, y/n?

EDIT: more pictures showing markings on abdomen. It looks like some white spots, I don't see any red hourglass :-\

And again- not killing it YET because last time I tried it got away. I have two cats who currently can't get to the closet. I really don't want to scare the spider to them when I'm unsure if it's a black widow, since a black widow bite can kill a cat. I'm not keeping it as a pet, but I'm trying to know what I'm dealing with first.

I didn't want to get my hand close to try to get a picture next to a coin or anything for size :-\
