Yeah, I thought about that too. Just like dogs and people, cats and kittens are all different too, so it would depend on the personalities of all involved. Also, when I said older, I meant a young adult, or even an older kitten--young enough to adapt well but old enough to be a little calm. Come to think of it though, a young kitten would probably be more likely to take right to the dog without being afraid.
Also, Claire was right about the reasons for getting another pet. If the second pet is just to keep the first one company, a second one should not be gotten. It has to be just as loved as the first one.
