Eaten spider plant

One of my ratties managed to pull my spider plant through the bars and eat a bit. It must have grown because it was not within reaching distance the day before. I have just read that they are poisonous to animals. I don't know who done it or how much was eaten. What shall I do!

Tiny but perfectly formed :) Their fur is so silky that I can't keep hold of them. Tails not square. Looks like I have nothing to worry about. Thanks Jemma...again :D
