No. Tapeworms only exist in pets. They cannot be transferred from a pet to a person. :) check out this site I had the same question just a sample from the page Because of immunizations and things like litter boxes and flea treatments, the transfer of pet diseases to humans has greatly been reduced over the years, but there are still some diseases that people can get from pets. And most troubling, when people are infected by their pet, they usually don't know it.
