Colton the rabbit was 8-years-old when he was brought to A Critter's Chance Animal Rescue Center with this permanent head tilt from a previous medical condition. The white ball of fluff has E. cuniculi, a parasite in the brain that causes meningoencephalitis and microscopic cysts. In turn, they can cause paralysis anywhere in the body.

Everything Colton does is sideways, eating carrots, drinking water and kissing his owners. His condition means that he needs a higher level of care, since his head tilt makes is super hard for him to keep himself clean and groomed. He also needs a super clean living area, constant exercise and ongoing treatment for his right eye.

Still, Colton the bunny is a happy, healthy little bugger. He loves munching on grass, getting stroked between the ears and running in circles. He does have some issues with his left-hand turns, but this brave little fella never gives up on a challenge. On the other hand, his unique appearance and friendly demeanor makes making friends and attracting admirers a breeze everywhere he goes. Colton also never misses an opportunity for some love and relaxation.

The tiny fighter teaches everyone he meets to enjoy the simple things in life, like the colors of the sunset and the green, fresh grass. He has since been adopted into a forever home!

A Critter's Chance is a 501c3 organization specializing in exotic/domestic pet rescue.
