I second Tuscany's advice of a slow introduction...my cats lived separately for almost a month during the introduction period. Some just take longer then others.

That said, introducing an energetic kitten to a 10 year old adult could be pretty stressful for your current cat. Would you ever consider 2 kittens so that they could play w each other instead of pestering him? Food costs for the additional cats wouldn't be that much more, and most reputable shelters/rescues will spay/neuter before they're adopted so you wouldn't have to pay for that. If you google "why kittens should be adopted in pairs" you should find some good info.

Just my 2 cents!
