How to snap a Mongoose at night without a flash?

I am a light sleeper and last night at 2 am, I was disturbed by a noise outside of the bedroom. When I looked out, it was a Mongoose foraging through the flower beds. Very quietly, I opened the bedroom window and switched the camera on. Even though the flower beds are illuminated, the light wasn’t enough for a clear photo. I set the camera to “M”, pushed the ISO up to 3200, f4.1, but it wasn’t enough as everything was still too dark. I didn’t really want to use a flash and scare the Mongoose away.

Any suggestions please?
All the best
