In brief: Yes

Catching from the toilet seat would be a difficult process but possible.
If the womanb's perineum touched discharge (fairly fresh) contained on a toilet seat or if infected bowl water splashed up onto the perineum, then trichomonad could colonized the vagina and yield an infection. Yes, you can have it again after 2 years. Usually a reinfeciton. Trich can live a long time subclinically.
