Sorry, I'm still stuck on the fact that the kitten has not yet been to the vet and hasn't had tests for FIV/FLV or shots yet...I'd do that before thinking about getting another one.
Guess I am just a stickler because I would want to make sure that the kitten you have now is healthy and doesn't have something that could be passed on to your older cat.
Don't mean to sound like such a grumpy gal over here, I just know that I adopted a kitten that looked healthy, took it straight to the vet before going home (thankfully) and found out the kitten had a rather tough case of roundworms, an eye infection and the beginnings of an upper respitory infection - oh, and the vet found one flea. Thankfully, FLV/FIV negative.
That's an awful lot for a kitten that quite honestly looked to be perfectly healthy, no eye discharge visible, no nasal discharge visible, the couple times she sneezed, the person adopting her out told me it was due to dust in the house (they were in the process of moving out of state and it was dusty---I was sneezing too).
Just imagine if I had brought all that into my apt and didn't realize it?
I just tend to err on the side of caution...I wouldn't want anything bad to happen with either your kitten or your older cat - or you for that matter.
Sorry this is so long.
