I want to express some caution with using yarn for mouse tails--beware of items that might be swallowed. I would instead choose leather, sisal, or thick cord.

Monster toy. I think this is a cat toy. Could be a child's toy. Could be both.
First of all, remember to supervise playtime--cloth that is swallowed can cause big problems (and big vet bills). I have a client who was initially scared to hire another pet sitter because her previous sitter allowed her dog to die after he ingested portions of a chair cushion. The sitter said he had to go to work. Uh, hello, the dog's life is the priority. Work can wait. See safety tips in this article.

Make a Dog Toy Out of Dish Towels
It's hard to decide which is more painful: paying for a dog toy that's going to be destroyed in no time flat or living with a gnarled pig's ear on the sofa. Take dish towels that look as if they've lived in an auto shop for the last decade and make them into chew toys that won't cost you a penny.
WHAT YOU NEED: Three laundered dish towels and scissors.
WHAT YOU DO:
1. Cut an inch-wide strip from one short end of two towels.
2. Bunch each of the three towels and use one strip to tie them firmly together at one end. Tightly braid them, then tie the other end with the second strip.
ALSO WORKS WITH: Napkins and orphan socks, for smaller pooches.
