Reduce the top, take off a few fronds, so the small amount of root doesn't have so much to support. Don't feed, that won't help at this stage, keep moist, don't drown it though.

the flowers won't grow into branches but the shrub will continue to grow.
Some people prune these back really hard every year, you don't get the flowers but the leaves are bigger and the shrub doesn't become enormous.
I love the shiny leaves of Black Bryony, it looks perfectly at home in the photo, seems a shame to be talking about poisons
no, it doesn't sound like cat. Have you got a photo?
they'll just be potatoes.
