|Maybe you could try a foster situation with your local humane society. That way if it didn't work out, you haven't really adopted the cat/kitten yet.
Charlie is 14 and likes to be left alone. But he had a brother, Oscar, for 12 years. I only saw the two of them lay by each other a handful of times in all those 12 years, and sometimes they play fought kinda rough.
After Oscar died I tried a foster cat who was very sweet at the shelter. But she was almost Charlie's size, and it stressed Charlie out a lot. I would have given it more time, but Charlie started suffering with coughing spells from the stress. So I took him to the vet, found out he has asthma, and started treating him.
Now it's a month later, and I've just adopted a baby kitten, 6 weeks old. I decided a small kitten might be less stressful for him....but at the same time, I'm worried she will bother him with her high energy.
They havent met yet, so you can stay tuned to find out how it goes.
