Strong little cactus

I really like this little cactus. It came well packed (of course!) and has been doing good for the two weeks that I’ve had it, except for one thing. Due to the fact that I was out of pots when it arrived, I planted it in a container with no drainage holes, which led to some very small water damaged areas on it. It has since been repotted in a pot with proper drainage and had a minor surgery to remove the bad areas and is doing great. Just as healthy as the day I got it. I would recommend as long as overwatering and drainage issues aren’t in the equation.
