Adopting a three-legged cat- are there considerations we're overlooking?

My partner and I lost our beloved kitty of many years, and after taking some time, we're starting to think about adopting a new cat. Today we visited a local shelter and met a sweet, loving 1 year-old kitty who is missing one hind leg. We know that "tripod" cats tend to get along quite well and we'd take care to provide steps and a good soft bed. But my partner and I are both usually gone during the day, and we're wondering if a three-legged kitty might be more prone to falling, and whether she might be better off with more supervision than we could provide. Are we worrying too much?
