cat mites

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I am wondering can cat (ear) mites be transfered to humans?
The reason I ask, is my sister in law just got a kitten & the kittens ear was dirty.not sure if it is mites or dirt...
She is taking the kitten to the vet to check, but in the meantime I am itchy..maybe my active mind.....also i have 2 cats & I dont want them to get anything..My cat are indoor cats..so if i got the mites then i am afraid my cays will get them from me.....IF thats what it is
I think i am the only one who is scratching lol...
first post sorry to be confusing

Hi bruce and welcome to the forums. I am far from any expert, but our article on mites talks about them being transferred to dogs, but nothing about humans.

Ear Mites

I have imported cats from overseas with earmites before, and I think it would be pretty safe to say that cats can't pass on Ear Mites to Humans.

Hey Bruce!

That's so neat, I would love to see them when you have time.

What are your kitty's names?
