I was preparing both her food and my food, when she just jumped on the counter and drank a bit of oil i used to fry chicken for me.

It's not hot thankfully and not much i was able to stop her. It's palm oil and i am freaking out if this will poison her.

A little bit won't do much I'd think. I believe palm oil acts like a laxative in animals so she might have some soft stools right off the bat.

Tbh i am worried she would hurt herself or something. My first kitten's death kinda traumatized me and made me paranoid over my kitty's safety :(

A little oil won't hurt. A little more oil will act as a laxative. A lot of oil might be harmful. . .but cats are usually smarter than that. So I think she'll be fine if she only got 2 or 3 licks :).
