gah! newb!!

howdy folks! i'm new to the community and relatively new to gardening...hoping i can get a few questions answered. 1 - i'm moving into my boyfriend's house later this year, and i have a cat. he has a night-blooming cereus. should i be concerned about this combination? during the cooler months, the cereus is kept indoors...in the same room where the litter box will be...so i just want to ensure we won't be encountering any issues with the cat being tempted to eat it, or it poisoning him if he DOES get the munchies. 2 - how do i know what zone we're in? what does it mean? 3 - just how hard is it to start a veggie garden from seeds? he's giving me as much land as i'd like or need for veggies, provided i grow peppers and tomatoes. i figure it might be cheaper to grow from seed, rather than from seedlings. should i start seeds in something like cardboard egg carton for ease of transfer? when should i start growing? thanks. :D
