Peanuts are not toxic for cats, however should not be a main part of their diary diet. Cats are strictly carnivores and their digestive system is not as prepared to digest plant foods as the one from omnivores.
Therefore, we advise you to prevent your cat from eating peanuts.

If your cat acts normally, there is nothing to worry about. Still, keep an eye on her stool in case of diarrea.

If she starts vomiting continuously and having a diarrhea more than one day, or if she starts acting strange and lethargic, you should take her to the veterinarian, since it could be connected with some other medical issue.

All the best for you and Coco.
