Cat eating insulation

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive March 2007: Cat eating insulation
By Colette on Sunday, March 25, 2007 - 01:04 pm:

I just went into my basement and found a small bit of pink fiberglass insulation that looks like it was chewed and then vomited. My cats love to sleep on the heating ducts in the ceiling of the basement, so this would be the only way they could get the insulation (the floors on the first floor are insulated). Any idea why a cat would eat this and what I should do about it? I am calling the vet tomorrow but thought I'd ask here too. Both cats appear to be perfectly fine.

Go down and spray the chewed area with a dilute solution of about 1 cup of vinegar to a gallon of water, or some kind of lemon fragrance air freshener to deter the cats. I have read that lemon, especially, is a smell they don't like. And, of course, calling your vet is the right thing to do. You may have to figure out some way to cover this insulation so the cats can't get at it.

Is there any chance there could have been a mouse?

that's what dh said...I am trying to convince myself that there is no mouse...
