Why not make all the cats indoor only? It's much safer for them that way, plus you won't have to deal with fleas, exposure to FIV, and all that other stuff.
I'm always in favor of someone adopting a new cat that needs a home. I think so long as you find one with a similar personality, it should be ok. If you do decide to bring home another cat, do a google search on "cat introductions" so that you do it the right way in order for the best chance that they will be friends.
Try to play with indoor-only cats at least 15 minutes a day with some sort of interactive toy, like Da Bird or other fishing pole type toys, or a laser.
