I found this strange bug cocoon underneath my fridge and am a bit worried that we’re about to be infested with an alien species. Can you tell me what it is?

Dear Freaked Out,
This is a Beetle pupa, but we are uncertain of the species.
Thanks for replying so quickly. Once you wrote beetle I had a thought.. mealworms. I have baby newts here at the moment and was trying to feed them mealworms, and I reckon the cat got one and dragged it off and now it’s changing into it’s beetle state. Weird looking thing though isn’t it? Thanks for replying, much appreciated!
