Just as the title says.
money isn't a real issue, but nothing ridiculous.

Get as many samples as you can. I've found the color shown is mostly right. Mostly. Seeing it in person really helps.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

you could just go to a fabric store and look around and see if there are any you like. then if you don't find any you like just check online but i don't know any sights for that

A lot of people,  myself included,  have a pretty good liking for distinctive fabrics' fur.

Try ordering a swatch in a few different colors.  That way you can see the fur before you invest any real money into the project.

I've got a local fabric outlet store that sells tons of fabrics for super cheap, and faux fur by the pound! Not a huge amount of variety, but it's dirt cheap so I can't complain.

Other than that, I am really liking the looks of this website here, it has a ton of variety. I just need to get around to ordering swatches and actually starting a project with faux fur.
