Just repairing a section of good old painted woodchip that the cats have
scratched to bits, and I'm thinking - they'll destroy new paper just as
quickly, I've got plenty of carpet offcuts handy, any reason I can't glue
carpet to the wall instead of of wallpaper?
It will look strange but if you can live with that it only leaves the
problem of scratched-to-bits cat-damaged carpet on the wall, assuming your
cats will find the wall-mounted carpet just as attractive as the woodchip.
A better solution (in my mind) would be to cover the repaired woodchip with
clear acrylic sheet. I did that with the last length of stair carpet, as it
meets the floor, which for some reason our cat found attractive to sink her

I removed the paper and emulsioned the wall - its quite easy to
polyfill, sand & paint then.
Also put double sided sellotape on the odd bit of pine, they don't like it!
Also anchored a bit of builders board for him to have a scratch
