Mary Krupa, a student at Penn State University, befriended a squirrel on campus she calls Sneezy. For treats, Sneezy will sit with tiny paper hats on his head and pose with props for photos! Sneezy even has a Facebook page – Sneezy the Penn State Squirrel.
Squirrels easily adapt to “begging” and taking food from people (especially on college campuses), but they usually are not this compliant or tame.
Check out some pictures of Sneezy:

Squirrel Appreciation day:
It must have been difficult to get this hat to stay on with the fuzzy stuff on the brim. Genius idea though!
Halloween costume of Frankenstein’s Monster:
The little “shoes” make this even more adorable! The plastic pumpkin is a very nice touch.
I love the idea of papercraft for light outfit props that can easily be shaken off and do no damage to the animal. Look at those adorable boots!
All of these photos and more can be seen on Sneezy’s facebook page here. Like Sneezy’s page to see future pictures and to show your support!
We here at FT think that we might be trying on some papercraft hats in the near future. I mean, it would be far better than some things our human has made us try on…
Even if you didn’t enjoy my Cabbit joke, Google always has awesome April Fools’ Day jokes! This year was no different. Here were my favorites:
1. Google maps Pokemon Challenge
Here is a video that explains how they planned to hire the Pokemon Master who was able to complete the challenge of finding digital Pokemon hidden all over the world. Of course, technology is not advanced enough for this to really happen. But it does look like fun!
Google actually put 150 different Pokemon all over the world on their map application and allowed users to search for them and “catch” them. Each catch updated your Pokedex, so you could see which ones you found.
Here are screen shots of a Pokemon on the map and what catching it looked like:
Here is what your Pokedex looked like once you caught all 150 Pokemon:
2. Emoji Translation for Chrome
Have you ever wanted to translate everything you type into picture Emoji? You know, those little face pictures that convey meaning like happy, sad, excited, etc. I have not either, but the concept is really funny:
3. Chromecast for Squirrels
Squirrels can now use Google’s Chromecast device to stream videos, movies, and more with new paw friendly technology:
I loved this one, I mean squirrel superheros?!
4. Google Apps for Business Dogs
This one was my second favorite! Apps just for your dog so they can participate in doing business too, how useful! And of course the dog they feature in the video is simply adorable.
