So, my sister's youngest cat bit her way into a glowstick, and now we're worried.

Without going into the whole sequence of events leading to the incident, my sister's youngest feline companion (2 years, tiny build) bit into a small glowstick. We only clocked it when she darted out the room and started growling strangely. We arrived to see her shaking her head, mouth foaming, glowing drops on her fur, and entered panic mode. My sister darted off to get the cat washed off, and try to get her to drink water or at least rinse out the residue from her mouth while I confirmed that she did indeed bite the glowstick.
So far, we've given her milk, food, and we're keeping a close eye on her. Right now she's resumed her usual activities like cleaning and pestering her sister, and seems to be normal, but we just need reassurance that she'll be fine. Amount ingested would be small, contact with the stick not that long. We've done the research, and small amounts are meant to be non-lethal, but it scared us both the fuck out and it's taking a bit for our nerves to calm.
Will the youngest be okay? Anything we should watch out for? Anything we can do to help? Oh, and of course, good answers will paid with pictures of the troublesome feline.
