Is city tap water ok to fill a bowl with and have a cat drink that? Or does the chlorine or whatever chemicals affect her???

Sure, tap water is fine. If your area's water is fluoridated, that's an added bonus for the cat's teeth.
Fluoridated water has had a huge impact on decreasing cavity and decay rates in the human population.
By contrast, parents who feared fluoride and chemicals in supposedly "dirty" tap water and reared their kids on bottled water caused a counter-wave of rise in cavities.
For fluoride poisoning, there has to be a much higher fluoride content than is in fluoridated water.
