Introducing a New Kitten to Resident Cat?

I have a 3 year old, Persian female spayed cat who has had her own space for 3 years now living happily with us five family members at home. My concern: is it a good idea to get her a new partner (a kitten)? She is quite, playful, and sweet but not sociable with any strangers, which makes me hesitant about getting a new kitten.


If you think I should get a new kitten, what gender would be the best match and what would I do if she does not get along with it? And would this affect her feelings in anyway?
Thx for helping ;)

Adding a new kitty (or even older cat) to your home may be very difficult as your older cat has been "top cat" all of her life. I strongly suggest you bring your older kitty to your vet to discuss a new kitty addtion. Your vet is very experienced in this area and will examine your cat and then discuss your cat's personality and habits with you.


The vet will then make her or his recommendations on the possibility of a new kitty for you to consider.
