Help with bug and bite ID...losing sleep!

Caught this guy in October 2019 and immediately bagged it. Is it a bed bug? This and many others were crawling on our old cat tree which has since been thrown out. They were white/translucent and hide in the carpet padding of the cat tree pretty well. Fast forward to today, these “bites” began appearing on my inner thigh. 20200213_040143 20200213_040117 20200213_040059 20200213_040011 20200213_035954

Hello, and welcome to our forum. While I’m not sure exactly what species that is, I’m 100% confident that it’s not a bed bug. It looks more like some kind of tick. Best of luck with your ID and treatment.
