Most rabbits prefer a bowl over a bottle. I had an American Fuzzy Lop years ago, and he did fine with a water bowl. You have to have a heavy crockery bowl for rabbits, so that they can’t knock it over.

There used to be lubricants sold for rabbits to help them with hairballs, I know one was called Petromalt, and maybe they do still sell them, but it was found that they don’t work. They only thing recommended to prevent hairballs is plenty of hay.

Regarding litter, I found that the pine or aspen pellets are better for rabbits with long fur. They don’t tend to stick to the fur as much as Carefresh or other paper litters do. Feline Pine and Aspen Supreme are 2 brands. For the most economical litter, you can buy wood stove pellets (plain, no accellerants) or horse stall pellets. These both come in 40 pound bags for around $6.
