No, apart from a few species, stink bugs are not predatory insects. They are not of any danger to you, nor to your cat or dog. The only damage they can cause to your home is the smell. Even those few types of stink bugs that do bite, are not harmful and only do it to protect themselves. Still, you and your pet could be allergic to their smell and bite. If an irritation and other allergy symptoms occur, contact your family doctor.
Stink bugs are extremely dangerous for your crops, fruits and vegetables outside the house and for the tidiness inside of it. In case of a grave infestation terrible traces appear and your furniture can keep the smell for months.
