Sneezy the squirrel is nuts about trying on hats

A fun-loving squirrel who loves to dress up in an array of nutty hats has become a star attraction at a US university.

Sneezy the squirrel’s popularity has soared after the animal struck up an unlikely friendship with animal-loving student Mary Krupa at Penn State University in Pennsylvania.

A bond that began over a packet of shared nuts quickly blossomed, with the 18-year-old undergraduate soon feeling confident enough to dress Sneezy in a range of assorted homemade hats.

‘One day I was sitting under a tree and some kids nearby were feeding a group of squirrels and they weren’t running away – so I decided to try the same thing,’ she explained.

‘They got friendlier and friendlier, particularly Sneezy, but I honestly don’t know what inspired me to put hats on her – I just wanted to see what I could do as it was funny.

 ‘I had a tiny doll hat with me and tried it. Amazingly she sat there with it on long enough for me to take a picture. It was so cute.’
