tail end


Category: Tag:

Quick to crochet, tail end will keep your cat moving and entertained for hours. This toy is made with less than 10 yards of worsted weight yarn, these mouse tails are finished faster than microwave popcorn and healthier for the feline in your life. The shape provides hours of fun for a paw to swat and is easy to carry around the house. The braided tail provides added amusement and saves you the time of weaving in additional ends.

Use of a smaller-than-recommended hook will provide a dense fabric that holds up well to your cat’s play.

A percentage of proceeds from this pattern will be donated to Humane Society of Westchester at New Rochelle, in memory of Shadow and Buddy. ♥
