Hello! As a licensed veterinarian I am happy to assist you!
Impatiens are not toxic to cats, so if she is nibbling on them it should not be too much of a problem. However, any significant change in diet can cause some mild to moderate stomach upset in our pets.
That said, if you feel she is "not feeling well" I recommend a trip to her vet to make sure something else isn't wrong, as the impatiens are unlikely the source of her illness.
If you would like, you can provide more details about what makes you think she is not feeling well and I may be able to provide a bit more direction, but again, if she continues to act sick a trip to the vet would be a good idea.
I hope you find this information helpful. Please feel free to respond with additional questions or concerns, and once you are happy with my answer please remember to rate my answer so I receive credit for my time.
Thank you!
