The solution to too many cats is... more cats?

Yet another "should I get another pet" question. I have a thirteen-year-old cat
. 3 years ago, his longtime kitty companion died, and he was very, very sad. So we got him a new friend
to play with, and everyone was happy. Except now my cat is getting old, and he doesn't have the energy to play with the youngster anymore. This has resulted in one being irritated, and the other being confused and irritating (not to mention fat). I think the solution is another, younger cat to keep little brother company, but for some reason the idea of three cats seems weird to me.

Assuming I have the space and budget, is getting a third cat a good idea? Has this worked out for you, or do they just gang up on the first cat? First-person accounts welcome! I just want my old friend to be able to live out his days in peace.
