Penn State Student Gains Rep as Squirrel Whisperer

Updated: Tuesday, September 2 2014, 01:07 PM EDT

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 (http://bit.ly/1B9IvPf ) 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 official mascot, the Nittany Lion.
