Moving my cat between my home and parents home

Hello, 


I have a 6 year old male Tabby cat, he has lived his life with my at my percentage with 3 other cats until last summer, when we lost a cat, and since then has lived with two other cats. I recently loved into a condo and after a week with him there with me, I had to begin commuting out of state for work, every week and sometime every other week, coming home on weekends.  After a week here, he seemed to settle in, I think he was a bit lonely, because he always had other cats with him even when we were all at work, but I had to then take him back to my moms since I am commuting.  I am home now for Christmas for over 2 weeks, and would really like to bring him here with me until I leave again.  I am just afraid this will do more damage than good.  I just miss him so much while I'm away and afraid he will forget who I am.  He is the most personable cat we have, never hid when people came over, not scared of much. But, I be did take a few days to adjust when I brought him to my condo, and than again when I took him back to my moms.  Is this too damaging for him?  Thanks!

I have a cat and two homes.  Every year I go down south, and every summer I go up north.  Each time I go to my other house I bring my cat with me.  She is horrible in the car and cries constantly.  I did talk with the vet, and she gave me some medicine to keep her calm, which kind of worked, but not really.  Down south she is an indoor cat, and up north she is an outdoor cat.  I love her very much, and other than the drive, she does just fine.

Pets are taken as another part of family and this is difficult to live without seeing them alternately. And this is common problem when out pet are away.
