Cats can take very small amounts of aspirin. When a 6 week old kitten we had came down with an upper respiratory infection the Vet said I was to give him 1/8th of a baby aspirin. Yeah, you try it, all you end up with is dust.

My understanding is that with the extremely small amounts that are a safe amount for a cat your concern is still the same as it is for us and dogs, stomach irritation with long term use.

I only had to dose it for about two weeks. You'd be amazed how hard a tiny little kitten can bite when you ram your aspirin dust coated finger into the back of his throat in hopes enough dust transfers to be a therapeutic dose.
