cat nibbled my plant!

hey everyone! my roommateโ€™s cat has unfortunately taken a liking to cyprus and chewed off some of the leaves. what should i do, if anything, to recover/help the plant be okay?

You can prune off the leaves that your cat nibbled on at the spot where they meet the stem. The plant should be fine, albeit more bare until it grows more. It's a good thing rattlesnake plants are non-toxic to cats and dogs. This isn't the case for all of them though, your roommate should mind their pets around plants more.๐Ÿ˜–
@ArieBerrie Thank you so much! Yeah specifically got a non toxic plant just in case and all the potentially dangerous ones are in my room, not in the shared spaces, but I wanted to try putting one out thereโ€ฆ.fail ๐Ÿ˜ญ
