You need to see a doctor to look at this rash. Stray cats can carry any number of diseases/parasites (ringworm, fleas, scabies, etc.) so I would definitely have it checked out for you and your teenagers. (Call your vet for your dog and the kitten if you are considering keeping it) Good luck.

I am sorry, but I am not a vet and really cannot answer that part of your question. There is an ask the vet forum as well as pet communities you could try. Also, you could try the ASPCA (see if you can find a local chapter). They can also offer you some help as far as seeing your animals and taking care of the shots for the kitten. Sorry I can't be of much help with your pets. Good luck.
