Okay, so against everyones advice, and I mean everyone, I just could not resist bringing home Otis. I just went to look at him, I had no intension of taking him home with me... if you're a softy for kitties don't ever "just look."
We brought Otis home Monday night and it was actually a very smooth transition. Out of paranoia, I kept Otis in his own bedroom the first night and did not let Angel meet him until the next day. As it turned out, he adores Angel. He is the most well-behaved, gentle, submissive cat I have ever met. He is a pure bred Persian, 6-month-old neutered male. He was on his way the kitty pound and we just could not let that happen.
Angel doesn't really know what to think of him yet, but she has a whole new lease on life! She went from a lethargic, sleep-all-day kitten to a playful, social, interactive baby girl. She is like a completely different kitten. Her and Otis spend time playing for a few hours and then they snuggle up for long afternoon naps together. I don't know if cats can "sense" when other cats are not well, but he sure treats her like the Queen that she is. I have never seen two cats act like this so soon after being introduced. I hope this is not just the honeymoon period.
Here is a picture of my two babies:

Angel is the tiny white kitten and Otis is the large Persian. It is an odd relationship watching a tiny little girl clearly dominate a large male cat, but she enjoys every second of it. He doesn't seem to bothered by being bossed around either. He respects her room and her food and is only allowed in when she lets him. Cats... gotta love 'em.
Thanks for all of the comments, even though I didn't listen to any of them. (Luckily I won the kitty lottery! )
