Hello, this is Dr. Schmidt. Thank you for using JustAnswer. A few bites of canned cat food should be fine for her, the worst you could expect would be some GI upset, but 99% of the time, you will see no issues whatsoever. I would monitor her for vomiting and diarrhea today. If you see either of these symptoms, I would take her in to the emergency vet.
