The cat could have a nutritional imbalance. A request for a chem panel would tell a vet if he did. If the cat is eating wool articles it could have what is known as PICA it is an imbalance of chemicals. If the cat is licking bricks, cemet, rocks or concrete he could be anemic. Not sure what this cat is chewing on?
Well, you also have to look at the age of the cat. If it's a younger kitten it could be because he's teething... Also if he's an older can and he's lost teeth he could be chewing on things to help new teeth grow...

Hey, it was a holiday! I put my brain on hold for the day.
I have had two paper shredders across the years. These two loved chewing cardboard boxes and shredding any paper that was available to them. They never ate the paper or cardboard, so I figured they just liked the way it felt to chew and rip this stuff.
Sam loves sitting on paper. He will shred paper to get my attention. For example, if I decide to try sleeping in, and don't get up after he has jumped on me, and gone on to knock things off the night table, then he will start shredding magazines. Or if I am working and not noticing how absolutely adorable he is, he jumps on my desk and shreds invoices.
So he is an experienced and strategic paper shredder.
