Winkelhimer Smith is a Louisiana-based squirrel who became disabled in 2011 after a “mean old cat” tried to eat her. But thankfully that didn’t stop her from becoming a self-taught artist. Bushy-tailed Ms. Smith learned to paint (with food coloring) by watching her adoptive mom and doll artist Shyla Mouton who sometimes sells her pet squirrel’s art on Ebay and Etsy (all monies go to charity).
