insulation?

We are having some work done on our ceiling and there is a hole where our light fixture is. When I got home from work today there was a big pile of insulation on the floor. It is the blown in type versus the rolled type. I am wondering if my kitty ate some if I need to take her to the vet? any thoughts. ??? Thanks1

There are many different types of blown insulation: Fiberglas, cotton, cellulose, recycled paper - and combinations therein. They often have borates and ammonium sulfate added to them, as anti-fungal and pest deterring agents. Not exactly good for consumption. I would keep a close eye on her. You might want to just call your vet (or maybe even a couple different vets for multiple opinions) and see what they recommend. I'm sure they've run into similar situations.

She sits in her corner, singing herself to sleep.
Wrapped in all of the promises, that no one seems to keep.
