    Tylenol acetaminophen when given to a cat will make your cat sick it'll probably vomit and it will probably recover and then it will die a week later of liver failure. Sometimes the cat pukes it up in time and is fine sometimes it isn't

    Cats do not have the enzyme needed to break down paracetamol safely. Instead, dangerous compounds are formed within their bodies. This affects the red blood cells, and stops oxygen from circulating effectively. These compounds also cause severe liver damage.

    Ifit vomited it up then you should be OK... speak to your vet if you are concerned
