I have a five-year-old female cat and would like to get a second cat. Any thoughts on whether one female and one male is a better combo than two females? She's not very aggressive and is spayed.

It seems to be often recommended to get the opposite sex of the current animal. I have 2 females and 4 males that all get along great and always have.

I think the temperment of cat matters more than the sex. Females get along with males and females. I have a lot of cats, and it seems to be the personalities not the sex that determines if they get along.

All the reading I have done says to have 2 cats (both fixed) of opposite sex. Yes personality matters but your best chance at a good match is male & female. I am finding out the hard way with both my cats being female and fixed.

I have actually had better luck with both fixed females, than a fixed male/female combination.

it could just be the individual cats though, so who knows!

I had two brother males from the same litter and they got along fabulously. When they turned 13 years old I decided to add another kitten to soften the blow should one or both of the older cats pass on. We got another male and I must tell you that the two old frumps suddenly became alive again with this new addition to the family.They got along terrific once the kitten learned the two were the rulers of the property. I think that little guy added life to the older ones and I am proud to report that one of the older cats is now 20 years old~unfortuantly his brother passes last year at 19!
So that's my male cats story!
