I worried about that with Henry the wallpaper stripper but i don't think he ever tried to pouch the wallpaper because i never found any in his house.

I don't think a hamster would eat paper or carpet but maybe pouch it for nesting material. The carpet biting and digging is more of a means of trying to escape or to find out what's underneath the carpet i think.

I had a foster hamster called Maureen the shredder who would very enthusiastically chew and dig the carpet near a door. Any obstruction like a toy, cardboard etc she would simply push out of the way to get on with her mission.

Hopefully someone will come up with some ideas.
