Shorty will steal sips and drinks of stuff that are not water out of cups, cans and bottles I will list the stuff off and then I would like to know how bad it is for him to have this stuff a rating of 1-10 one being not a problem it's okay for him to drink it and ten being just awful he shouldn't have it at all. Also remember shorty is a cat.

You can find all that info online. If you have questions about specific items, it would be best to search for each item individually to ensure you've got your answer. That being said, even though some of those things aren't dangerous for cats, it's always better for your cat to stick to those things that are made for cats. Cats can't digest lactose, so anything with milk is not great for them. Some artificial sweeteners can be deadly for dogs and cats, such as xylitol. And nobody really knows if artificial sweeteners are even all that good for humans, so I wouldn't let my pets eat them. Caffeine and chocolate can be dangerous. When in doubt, do your research before giving it to them. Here are just a few sites that talk about foods that are harmful to cats to get you started.

I agree with nitewisp. Also a lot of those things have sugar in them and sugar isn't good for pets. It has the same effect on pets that it does on humans but it takes a lot less of it.
