My biggest fear, if I take her, is that one of mine will start spraying. It happened to one of my males when I took two stray males in, and I definately don't want that to happen again.
I believe my Jasper would spray if I took in a male too, so I will only do females/kittens. I just find keeping them separated gives the kitties time to get over the "shock" of having a new cat in their space.
