Giving cat as a present

In Cats

Just wanting to get opinion on what people think of giving a cat to a family member as a gift?  In my situation it would be replacing my grandfather's cat who passed due to old age.  She actually had to be put down, which is always sad, but despite my grandfather acting tough/macho, I could tell he misses having his cat around.  He says he would not necessarily want a new cat, but from what I can tell I think he would really enjoy having a new companion.  The hard part is knowing if I am overstepping any boundaries by getting him a new cat and/or really knowing if wants a new cat.  I do know he enjoyed his last cat, and because he lives alone, I think he would really enjoy the company.  On the other hand he may just not want a cat anymore.  I really want to get him a cat, but giving someone else a new pet could either be a really great gift, or it could be a really bad gift.  Thoughts?
