Cat socialization

My cat keeps getting introduced and socialized to kittens then having them leave is this ok or is it likely to problems.

They aren't his kittens and are typically in the house about 7 weeks on average.

I would think it's good, unless it causes him alot of stress.

One was a stray that showed up at the door, kept socialized and adopted out to a freind. The other was my girlfreinds she moved in with me stayed for about 2 months broke-up moved out. The third and final was my roommates she decided to get a kitten about a months ago and now she's slated to move in with her boyfreind in a few weeks.

I'm going to be getting a new roommate who may or may not have pets and have a new girlfreind who does have a cat. Thus far they have all been relatively young but the new girlfreinds cat it about 4-5 years old don't know who the new roommate will be yet. When I stopped and thought about it it seemed to me like just about the time that all the social order stuff for these cats gets worked out they get seperated. I was wondering what this would do for tap who's about a year old male nuetered.

I would think it'd be a good thing -- in case you ever want to bring another cat into the house, he's better at getting used to them.

I've noticed that each time we've adopted, it's gotten easier on the cats to accept them...I think that's the same thing that's happening with you.

As long as your cat doesn't seem stressed out by it, I think this is fine.

Nah the house cat Tap isn't stressed he simply just oges on hating all life save for me and a few select other people. Anyone one else around he wants to kill. Other cats though he ignores for a few days then starts to play with.
