Updated:STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) (AP)ong> - A Penn State student is gaining an Internet reputation as a "squirrel whisperer" for feeding, befriending and dressing up a furry little friend she's named "Sneezy."
Junior Mary Krupa told 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 as its Facebook page has more "likes" that a page dedicated to the school's officials mascot, the Nittany Lion.
