What breed?

As you all know christmas is right around the corner and i thought it would be the perfect time to get a cat. I'm 17 years old and want a cat of my own, so i can take to college in 2 years and so on. We have a cat and a dog and a little dwarf hamster that always sits in the corner. The dog is getting old, my other cat is as fat and as crabby as they come. (Female). the best reason my mom can come up with for no cat is "Not enough room" Well the dog is hanging in the yard most of the day, comes inside now and then, but its really old and I hate to say it might die soon.
Anyways I want a cat, are there breeds that grow noticably smaller than other cat breeds? I don't want a "dog" of a cat. And one more question having a female cat already I'm geussing another female would be the only option, the femlae is spayed so could I get a male? I hear males have a tendancy to be friendlier.

Thanks in advance, Dan.

The singapuran is the smallest breed among the domesticated cats, however I think it's quite expensive...

Slim cats with short fur such as rex and siamese tend to appear smaller than longhaired and more cobby cats such as the persian.

Don't forget to think about the temper. Do you want a cat that'll be playful, social, independant, quick to learn etc?

And since the female you already have is spayed, the sex of the new cat doesn't really matter. Just remember that spayed/neutered cats often are submissive to fertile cats. And older cats can be a little bit "touchy" about new cats.
