Anybody prescribed puva treatment to treat skin disorders?

Not any more, mostly

Uvb
PUVA stands for "psoralen plus ultraviolet-A" - you take a drug called psoralen, which sensitizes your skin to long-wave UV light, then you go in a UV light box. It was used to treat psoriasis and other skin diseases, but in recent years it has largely been replaced by narrow-band UVB light treatment, which works better and avoids the risks of psoralen, such as sunburn and cataracts.

Can you catch a skin disorder from a cat? Or bacteria ?

Yes, yes

Bacteria
Mange and some other fungal infections can be transmitted to humans but this is rare. If a cat bites or scratches you deep enough, you can get a bacterial infection. One of these bacteria is Pasturella. There is also a condition called cat scratch fever that is an infection transmitted from cats to people. Finally, there are some amebic parasitic infections that can be transmitted.
