It'll take you less than an hour to throw together (okay, maybe two if you're not much of a sewer), and you can customize it in tons of ways. There are so many colors of faux fur available in every length these days. I'm sure you can find something you love.
I've even seen tutorials of people painting faux fur to get exactly the color they want if you just can't find the right hue or pattern.
I've attached my faux fur tail with a safety pin, but use whatever you feel comfortable with.

Step 1: What you'll need:
- 1/4 yard faux fur
- new razor blades
- measuring tape
- needle and thread + sewing machine
- something large and curved like a plate
- safety pin for attaching
- fabric scraps or polyfill for stuffing
- pen or marker for marking
Keep in mind that 1/4 yard of fur will give you enough to make ears and tail!
