Unfortunately, one of my cats ate all the flowers and buds. Before I get too irritated, are they bad for cats? I'm finding nothing online on the topic. The flowers are pretty small though.

Is your cat indoors only? I have four cats, all outdoor cats (though one stays inside by choice) but I have not had any trouble with them munching on my plants. I think if they are allowed to go outdoors, they eventually learn not to nibble on plants, but I could be wrong. If you live in New York City, however, it would make sense for your cat to not be an outdoor cat.

My cats are both indoors only, and will stay that way. The people in my area drive like maniacs, there's other outdoor and stray cats for them to fight with, my neighbor's dog got ripped open by a larger dog last summer, and I have a bird and squirrel feeder in my yard.

After a long time waiting, there's finally another flower to show you! The cats won't get this one.
