STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - A Penn State student is gaining an Internet reputation as a "squirrel whisperer" for befriending, feeding and dressing up a furry little friend she has named "Sneezy."
Junior Mary Krupa tells WJAC-TV that she's able to dress up the squirrel in party hats, or get Sneezy to hold doll-sized props, simply by feeding the animal.
Krupa and Sneezy's exploits are chronicled in a Facebook page titled "Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel."
So far, the squirrel is proving quite popular. Its Facebook page has more "likes" than a page dedicated to the school's official mascot, the Nittany Lion.
