Wow. You all have some really interesting thoughts on this!

I fall in the camp of people who tend to think that male cats are slightly more affectionate than female cats. However, it's such a huge generality that it's worthless. Plenty of male cats are just hissy, and plenty of female cats are cuddly, lap cats.

Also, it appears to me that female cats are more likely than male cats to want to be "top cat" or the boss. I am probably biased because I have spent so much time in "Calico Tude" chat where stories of female cat dominance are applauded. Adding a cat who may want to be "top cat" to your home could be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on your resident cat and family dynamics.

I don't think anyone can say for certain that male or female cats make better "second cats," regardless of the sex of the current, resident cat. Nevertheless, this is a question almost always asked by single-cat owners looking to add another cat to their family. So it's very interesting hearing all the different stories and opinions. I'd love to hear more!
