Can cats eat peanut butter safely?

This answer was rated:

Peanut butter is not toxic to cats. However, in large quantities it can cause diarrhea or vomiting. If she develops diarrhea, this is what you can do:
1. Do not give things like Pepto Bismol it is toxic to cats. 
2. Leave her without 
food or water for 8-12 hours. Then, change her diet to rice (50%) and boiled boneless chicken or ground beef (50%) until the stool is back to normal then wean back into regular diet.
3. Supplement with a probiotic (fortiflora), these are friendly bacteria that help with regularity. Alternatively, give 1-2 teaspoon of plain yogurt 2 times a day.
