Was it a bat bug or a bed bug?

Every picture I've seen suggests that I found a bed bug. But no bites or blood can I see. Was it a bat bug instead?

In the last year I've twice found what looked exactly like a bed bug - once on sheets and once on a pillowcase stored in our linen closet. Our cat occasionally sleeps in there. But neither Mr_Itoku nor I have been bitten, nor have I seen blood castings or anything like that (obviously after I found the last one I washed everything in the closet on hot!). We have had several bat incursions in the house. So, what are the chances they were bat bugs instead? I've looked at pics of both and can't really tell the difference. I've ruled out other bugs, including ticks.
