I wonder if bunnies are as addictive as bettas?? xD

haha They shouldn't be! Of course they're cute but they get far more expensive!
Bunnies lack an enzyme which makes pus liquid-y so when they get abscesses (and most do at some point) they need to see a vet and get on an antibiotic regimine. That's just one problem and I bring it up bc my bunny has one on her jaw
(again -_-)
Bunnies frequently have tooth problems. My old bunny had to have a +200$ surgery to remove a tooth because it grew up into her eye duct and the others were not lined up right.
Bunnies NEED to be spayed and its reccommended they be neutered.
After all this expense bunnies can make wonderful pets. They can be litter trained (if they're fixed) and they can be trained to do all kinds of things!
But in direct answer, they're not as addicting as bettas because they require so much more financial stability and space! I got myself involved in the Bird and Small Animal Rescue in order to help out more bunnies :)

OO here's a question. What about salt licks? We picked up two little salt wheels from a farm supply store for under 2 bucks so its no big deal if we don't need them.

I've never encountered salt licks being fed to rabbits. Presumably, there should be sufficient salt content in a complete pellet feed but I'll double check with the vet tech I work with.

Bettas:
Colonel Mustard- Mustard Gas Male DT
Professor Marvel- Red Butterfly Male DeT
Hannah- Red Butterfly Female VT
Holly- Turquoise Female VT
Violet- Bicolour Female Spadetail
Molly- Red Female VT
Georgie- Multicolour Female CT

The Rest of the Menagerie:
Tobasco, Moonstone, and Gus (the horses)
Boots and Snowy (the cats)
Beatrice (the bunny)

Joey said he used to give one to his old bunny but he also used to live outdoors.

Side note: his parents came in town and saw everything we had for the little guy. Even his dad had to go "oh cute!" at the little harness lol. I can't wait to go pick him out. We're going to have to play with all of the boys she has and then pick which ever one boops or licks joey the most (by boop I mean nudge with nose).

She's right. There's no need for them. IF the bunny even licks them he'll just ingest more water as a result. but I wouldn't leave them in the cage bc it could replace the sodium content in his food and he could get sick. They are built to metabolise good pellet food and hay, not milk, excess calcium or sodium :)
