|Congratulations to your daddy for adopting such a beautiful, sweet kitty. I agree that a male kitten might be the easiest to add to the household, but every kitty is different. I don't think it's ever too late to add a kitty - Abbie was 17 when I came to live here. Matilda was a year old at the time. But it probably would be better to add one before you get too set in your ways.
One thing to consider is your personality type. Are you dominant? Are you shy? A complimentary personality type would be the best. Two dominant kitties would probably not do so well together, although even that is not impossible.
The most important thing is that when your daddy brings the new kid home, the kitten should be kept separate from you until the vet can look at it and make sure it has no diseases that can be passed to you, and until you can used to the idea of having the kitten in the house. This may take a few weeks, and daddy will have to be patient during the process. I got along with Matilda and Abbie right away, but that doesn't usually happen.
Mommy thinks you should definitely get another kitty - mostly because she's always had two kitties at a time and thinks that the sound of kitties chasing one another through this house is one of the most wonderful sounds ever (until I get too pushy with Matilda and the hissing starts... that's not so relaxing a sound!!!).
Last but not least, is the matter of kitten proofing. If your daddy brings home a small kitten, he may have to do some extra work to make sure there is nothing the kitten can get into.
