Can my cat spread the human scabies mite?

Doubtful

Mite
Animals & pets carry different Scabies mites. Scabies mites that live on pets are different from the ones found on Humans. BUT, mites on pets may be transmitted to you from an infested pet. They can burrow under your skin resulting in itching. This type of mite will not reproduce on you & should die within several days. You won't require medication but your animal needs to be treated.

What kind of scabies mites live on pets ? And what kind lives on human ? Can a pet be infested with the human mites ?

Mite Type

Mite
Dogs can develop canine scabies caused by Sarcoptes Scabiei canis. People can be infected by Sarcoptes Scabiei hominis. Scabies infestations in wild animals & other domestic animals come from different Sarcoptes Scabiei subspecies. To the best of my understanding mites of one subspecies will die fairly quickly when they attach to a different type of animal.

Hard to know

Scabies
Scabies infestation has plagued mankind for thousands of years. We have skin mites normally on our bodies which we are not aware of, the "dust mite" until we get allergies. There are mites that live on other animals eg. scabetic mange of dogs. Normally these do not live on people. Mites must have a living animal as their host as their eggs dry out after awhile and are no longer infectious.

Dogs and humans are affected by their own species of mite. Thus, it would NOT be likely that your toddler would get Scabies from your dog.

Scabies is an infection caused by a small insect that can burrow under the skin of humans, especially between the fingers, toes and along the waistline. It is contagious and is treated with an insecticide cream applied at bedtime and washed off the next morning.
