|I am probably the sweetest kitty you could ever want to meet. I am in indoor kitty who was neutered early and just have two things on my mind: love and food. I fit in very nicely with Matilda and Abbie when I was brought home. In fact, I just needed a very short introduction period. Abbie was 16 when I came here and Matilda was a year old. I gave her someone to play with and we just used Abbie as a big cuddle kitty. Abbie has since passed away, but Matilda and I are still close. I've never seen a grown cat consider a kitten to be prey. An un-neutered male cat might kill kittens in order to make the mommy cat go into heat again, but that mostly occurs with feral kitties (and I don't know how common that is). Besides, if all your kitties are spayed/neutered, that wouldn't be a problem.
Just take the introduction period slow, keep the new kitty separated from the resident kitties until they are all comfortable with one another's smells and sounds, and make sure everyone is up to date on the necessary shots and neutering. I think you'll be happy with a boy cat. We are lovers, not fighters!
