inappropriate insulation in attic?

Along with old blown in insulation in my 1930's home attic, I threw some old pile carpet and padding up there thinking that it would add to the insulation. I recently saw evidence of some critter (rats or squirrel) up there that seems to be coming and going. Should I remove the carpet? Is there any benefit to having it there? Is it a health hazard?
