That's not odd at all and really it's more dependent on the adult male cat's personality then it is age. Some cats are just more naturally laid back... and maternal?
Sho wanted a kitten - I'm not making this up. I had taken in kittens and rehomed them before, but never let them stay with him. He would always brrr and coo at them the door. When I decided to keep Tomas (and after getting him tested), Sho took to him immediately - grooming and snuggling with him. They bonded very quickly.
Now that Tomas is older, they play rough and try to figure out who's in charge (me and they know it
), but still groom and snuggle all the time. I only wish all kitties would get along so well.
Good luck if you decide to get another kitty! You've already been given great suggestions. I suggest, since you have a boy, that you don't focus on what sex of cat or kitten you will get. Just pick out the one that seems to call to you.
