|due to your age, a new kitten will probably disrupt the routine. older cats take longer to adjust, and they may have been used to being king or queen, so its hard to say.
my personaly opinion is that the new cat should have a similar personality to you (whether young or old). finding one who likes to entertain itself might be best.
either way, its gonna be hard for you to have to adjust to being one of 2, instead of the only one. my mom's going through a similar situation. i'm 3 years old, and have spent the last year by myself (and loving it!). now mom says we're getting a puppy. luckily, i like to play, but enjoy being alone, so the puppy can play with mom and the boyfriend when i wanna sleep. grandma comes over sometimes and brings her dog, and i try to play after an hour or so, once the pup settled down.
in the end, unless there is a major disruption between you and the new kitty, whoever calls to your mom's heart the most at the humane society (or wherever it is she's looking at cats... sorry, i have a bad memory). thats the cat she should choose. she should always keep in mind that she's picking out a new kitty for their forever home, and should really look into why a certain cat is pulling on her heart strings so.
hope that helped.
