Is this a bed bug? ?

I found it on my cats bed😞. I checked everything- the mattress, box spring, frame, sofa, curtains- I can’t find anymore bugs or signs of them anywhere. Should I be worried?

    It looks like a black carpet beetle.  They don't bite, but they can cause an allergic skin reaction.  Carpet beetles eat natural fibers, linens, towels, wool, animal fur and feathers.  Get the cat's bed washed and if you can't use a lint roller on the cat bed.  Also wash your bedding, vacuum and dust.

    Definitely not a bed bug. Some kind of darkling beetle.
