I have no personal experience, have lived in cooler climates my whole life, but since you aren't getting much movement on this post, I did some digging. I recommend you do the same.

I searched for "Cats and Scorpions" on Google.

Lots of posts. The basics seem to be that some scorpions are more poisonous that others and can hurt small dogs and cats. Many posts also say cats are good at killing Scorpions as they are faster than the scorpion... I didn't see anything iron clad that convinced me cats are immune; rather, it seems they can be hurt by them.

Recommend you do your own search on the web. Lots of Arizona, Mexico, etc., posts on the subject...
