I'm growing tomatoes on my balcony. Today I noticed a few auspicious yellow flowers peeking out.

@Rebecca Indeed! It doesn't matter that they are small. Every little thing has a beauty in itself.
E.g. look at these dewdrops: http://twitpic.com/qxb3c/full ... it's just a dewdrop, isn't it? Nothing special. These things are all around you - every day. Life is so amazing, even in the smallest things.
(BTW: the picture of the dewdrops was taken by me and is free art under a Creative Commons Attribution license - so go on copy it, if you like.)
Thanks for the advice, Tom! We'll see how it goes...
Is this the first time you grow tomatoes? Great plants - but need to be watered daily. Remember to pinch back the tomatoes ~ once in 2 weeks (I guess you know what this is and how to do it?).They like to clinch to some stick (as they may grow up high) and of course: a lot of sun. They don't like their leaves touching the ground.
This particular little plant looks like there is not enough soil in the pot.
For the cat - try cat grass: it's inexpensive and cats really love it. I've also seen a cat chew on a cactus, once ... but just once. My cactus still has a hole in one leaf due to the impact of cat teeth. The cat was lucky enough to get away without a free tongue piercing.
