Personally, I think it doesn't really matter a whole lot as long as they are introduced to one another as kittens (or at least one of them being a kitten and the other not too old, like less than four years).
What a great question! I worry about introducing a purebred kitten/ young cat to my Sophie and Mollie. I am thinking about getting another kitten, but worry about getting a breed that tends to be super active and dominant.
Maybe some of the breeders could list their breed and what type of cats (not just breed but age, personality, etc.) would be a good fit!
