Like Guinea Pig Fun's Jasmine, Tiny Tim was a rescued guinea pig. Nothing was known of his background or why he was left at a library on a cold winter night. He was found in a basket with half an apple and half a potato outside a library in near freezing weather. How he managed to survive the near freezing weather is not known. As Jo describes, "He was so pathetic to look at. He didn't move at all, except for his front feet, which would sort of flicker. He could barely lift his head. He was so cold and so weak. I honestly didn't expect him to live beyond a day or two when we brought him home. We just wanted to give him some love while we could." [EDIT by GPF: *Potatoes are not a recommended food for guinea pigs.]
