Default Shredded paper Okay?

When I had nutmeg out my mother was cleaning out her paper shredder box so there were a large amount of shredded paper on the floor, so of course nutmeg being herself she went to go see what it was, within seconds she was digging through the massive pile of shredded paper. I quickly took her out because I didn't know if it were safe or not. So would shredded paper be a safety hazard in some way? Or them to burrow in?

Shredded paper is very dusty and the ink used can be toxic which is then in the dust that they breathe in. I wouldn't use it.
