Mary Krupa, a rising senior at Penn State, discovered she had a special connection with squirrels on campus. They would come to her for food and let her pet them. She was so comfortable interacting with them that she earned the title of "The Squirrel Whisperer." This led her to take take things to the level: She started making the squirrels little outfits and staging squirrel-themed photo shoots. They are truly sights to behold.

You can view Krupa's other work on the official Facebook page of Sneezy, the beloved Penn State Squirrel. Sneezy actually refers to one of four different female Eastern gray squirrels, but according to Krupa:

“Whenever I find one that's willing to cooperate and it lets me take pictures, then that one is basically Sneezy for the day."

You can watch a video interview with Krupa from a few years back. She considers herself "an animal lover," and is pretty confident and self-aware about what she's doing.

Let's just hope she got a rabies vaccine.
