    I always think one of each is best.
    I also think it depends on the kittens too.
    I have had girls and Boy and Girls tend to be more independent where as Boys are soft and more affectionate.
    Two are great to have together. I am sure which ever you decide you will have lots of fun with them x

    I think, as long as they're neutered, there's not all that much difference.

    However, I'm looking into a kitten that is laid back, easygoing and largely unphased and have been told by breeders that I'd probably be looking at getting a boy. Apparently, they're more likely to fit that spec. I already have a male.

    Ultimately, I'm going for temperament and which one I feel would be best for Spooks- I think that's more important :) Two kittens tend to be good, too, as they (in theory) give the existing cat a bit of a break during introductions- they're less likely to really hound them. Again, I'd look at temperament and which would fit in best with your existing puss.

    Exciting times! :D

    Sex doesn't matter with neuters, matching energy levels and personality is more important.

    I own a mix of neuters, and have had pairs go in all combinations. Doesn't make any difference. I don't find my males to be cuddlier than females, they are all smoochy, lap sitting, cuddly cats.

    Thank you, not for me, but I was asked and I have heard before that 2 the same sex are best, but personally I think 1 of each:)

    From a litter of 5 kittens at 7 weeks old i noticed the male and female was always playing together, even now at 12 weeks old they stay and sleep together, so for this reason i wanted them both to leave together. :)

    Having 3 of each sex, i think you are right jill, the boys are lazy mummies boys and the girls are fairly independent.
    Jt is a female moggie who adores Archie the raggie, Jt was here a good 2 yrs before Arch but they just bonded and love each other.
    As spotty cats said, i think its down to personality at the end of the day :D
