*A great way to hand-tame your mice is to place them in the bathtub (closed drain with a towel along the ground) and allow them to crawl over your hands. If you choose to use this method, place an empty toilet paper roll in the cage and allow the mice to crawl in. Then, covering both sides so there are no accidents, lift the mouse out and place the roll in the tub. Remove the roll when the mice have left. Then sit next to the tub and place your hands palms up on the towel. Follow the same procedure used above with cage taming.

*A high protein snack you can offer your mice is freeze dried meal worms (or live if you are not squeamish). These can be purchased at most local pet stores often with the fish or reptiles. Mice are omnivores not vegetarians. They need protein in their diet and meat is a quick way to provide this. If you choose to not use meal worms then high quality dog food or freeze dried turkey or chicken can be given as a treat and supplement.

*The best resource for purchasing a pet is a reputable breeder. Search online for a breeder near your home or one who is willing to ship their mice. Purchasing a mouse from a responsible breeder usually means the pet you bring home will be healthy, calm, and trusting. However, you should expect to wait for a mouse purchased from a breeder. Responsible breeders do not breed mice to create more mice. Their goal is to create healthy mice with great temperaments and ideal markings. Because of this, some breeders will only breed two to three litters a year, and they will only adopt their mice out to responsible owner whom they trust. If you are willing to wait, breeders are the best option for purchasing a mouse.

*Purchasing a mouse from a pet shop is often the quickest way to bring a new pet into your home. However, pet shop mice are often bred in rodent mills with little to no attention paid to health, temperament, or genetics. Because of this, pet-shop mice are more prone to illnesses, infections, and misbehavior. If you choose to purchase a mouse from a pet shop, be aware that it may take weeks or even months for the mouse to feel safe and secure with you as its owner. These mice have often been mistreated before coming into your care, and because of this have learned to distrust humans. It is possible to teach these little creatures trust but you will need patience and determination.

* If the string breaks, there is friction, or it's just stuck and it won't come out, instead of ripping the tampon out of your body which is painful and may cause rips and tears that may get infected, hold onto the string and give a slight push, it will loosen the tampon. Don't worry, it sounds weird but your body will help push it out (same way it does with a baby).

* If you can feel the tampon when you walk or sit down or if it is uncomfortable, go to the bathroom and push it up further. If it is still uncomfortable, then it isn't in right and should be taken out and disposed of correctly.
 
* If you are at home and just find it too difficult to insert the tampon while on the toilet, give yourself a quick wipe and go lie down on your bed, with legs up against the wall. Then insert the tampon normally while aiming towards your back. This way is a lot easier, and it is also easier to push the tampon farther inside your vagina too.

* Don't tighten up when inserting the tampon, as this will hurt. It causes you to force the tampon up a smaller opening and can hurt the layer of tissue there.
