When we got Stix neutered he was about 7 months and then we got Kota (female - 3 months) and they get along great. Kota uses him as a punching bag. 8)

How old and how big is Tober? You may want to get a cat that is not too young so he won't hurt it during playtime.

Well, kittenhood is not a lasting thing so I wouldn't let that be the decision maker. However, having a younger cat can be an advantage. When they reach senior status, cats can be expensive in regards to vet care. I have two seniors and am spending about five hundred dollars in vet bills monthly - pills, blood tests, dental work for senior issues - CRF, hyperthyroidism, IBD, hypertension add up quickly. By having cats of different ages, you won't be hit so hard financially.

I've introduced kittens to eighteen year olds several times successfully.

What is more important in the personality of the two you are considering. Two strongly alpha cats won't really be a good mix.
