New home & timing new addition

Hello everyone.
We will close on our new house on the 24th of September and have been thinking for awhile now about getting Orry a "sibling." I'm unsure as to how long to wait after we move in to adopt another kitten. Orry is now 4 years old. I want him to get well adjusted to his new "territory" before adding a little brother/sister to the family. Also, should we get a female or male? And how old?

Orrymain,

Can't say I have an answer to your question, but congrats on the closing! It can be a stressful experience on us humans, nevermind the kitties

Congrats. I closed on my house two months ago so I know how it is. Lol. I would say wait until you are settled in your new home(unpacked , set up and have a new routine) since cats can pick up on stress and don't want to have more stress than you need while introducing two cats.

I would say get a cat around the same age. At least over a year because a kitten might but him too much especially when he's adjusting to a new house. As for sex, since he's male I don't think it really matters.
