Have an older cat, and asking about taking in a stray.

We have a great older cat (16 yrs, female), and our daughter's friend has a young stray cat hanging around their house. Not sure if the stray is male or female, and am guessing he/she is around 6 mos old. Very affectionate to humans. If we adopted the stray cat, we would take the cat to the vet to be checked out before introducing it to our cat so there was no transference of disease.

What are the pitfalls, if any? Will it matter if the new cat is male or female? Any suggestions for introducing the two if we go ahead with the adoption?
