I had two Maine Coon mix cats that really adored each other so much. Sadly one has passed and now my seven year old girl is lonely and I was wondering if because Montana her buddy was a boy, does gender matter? I want to rescue a kitten because I think the transition would be easier for her.

We have two Maine coon cats, one female and one male. The female is much smaller but she rules the house. We are planning to get a third and we both agree that we have to get a male otherwise she would not handle it. If the female runs the house then definitely replace with a male.
