Found several of these bugs alive, indoors, in Eastern Pennsylvania, today (middle of September). Sorry, I didn’t think to include something for scale. The thing is quite small– 1/4” to 1/2” range.
You have Carpet Beetle Larvae, common household pests with a cosmopolitan distribution. Here is a very similar looking Carpet Beetle from Iran. Try vacuuming more often and remove all pet hair.
