I don't worry about Sabastion on the balcony because he's afraid of heights and doesn't like being near the edge. However, he's different than a lot of cats. If I still live in this apartment when I get a new cat I will get some chicken wire and run it the length of the balcony. Even then, I won't let the kitten out because I don't want him/her jumping on or over the railing. The chicken wire is just a cautionary measure in case he/she gets out.

My sister lives on the first floor and her cats sometimes jump from the balcony! My dad made a cat-ladder (like a chicken-ladder, a piece of wood with small strips across it for the cat to put his feet behind when he's climbing or descending it) for them and they do use it.

Two of my cats like to go out on the balcony--but I only let them go when I am out there to watch them. One day I turned my back for a second and Sophie had managed to slide between the wood bar thingys and was standing on the other side of them looking at me! It scared me--I thought she would either jump off and get hurt or run away and I wouldn't be able to catch her. Thankfully when I yelled at her, she came running back inside. I learned my lesson--she is not allowed out there by herself.
