When Mary Krupa discovered she had a thing for squirrels, she had never imagined where this growing passion could take her. Nicknamed the "Squirrel Whisperer", the Penn State student would go around campus making friends with the squirrels living there. These squirrels were never known to be particularly tame, but for young Ms. Kupa it was a different story. They became so friendly with her, they would even let her dress them up in cute miniature costumes she would make herself, including tiny hats.
Photos of these squirrels went viral, and Ms. Krupa even created a Facebook page for this purpose, named Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel, which now has got more than 38,000 members. She states that she would name any of the squirrels that are particularly friendly "Sneezy", which is why she gave the page this name. When you see the pictures yourself, you'll understand why these adorable nut-lovers have made such a hit.
