Q: I bought a lovely loop rug which nicely ties in with the colors of my house. However, in less than a week my cats have done some serious damage which I can repair, but it would be a hassle to do over and over. I also have some tufted rugs, which seem to do better. Has anyone ever heard of turning a loop rug into a tufted rug? The loop is 0.5 inches high and the material is wool.
