Help to identify

Hi could anyone help to identify this insect found about 4 now in total in my home I'm thinking it's either a German Cockroach or a Silent Cricket?

Juvenile cricket - no chance of it being a cockroach.

Looks cricket like to me

I'd suggest creating a proper iSpot entry for it (use the "Add an observation" button) as you will be more likely to get ID suggestions that way.

Pet food

Did the house's previous occupant keep a reptile or amphibian? These are quite often used for food for exotic pets.
