Based on the information provided, it's not entirely clear what specific symptoms your 3-year-old female cat is experiencing, as the text "sdfasdf" does not give any details about her condition. However, I can offer some general advice for monitoring your cat's health and well-being, and what signs to look out for that would necessitate a visit to a veterinary hospital.

Firstly, ensure that your cat has access to fresh water and is eating properly. A sudden change in appetite or water consumption can be indicative of various health issues. Keep her feeding area clean and monitor her for any changes in her eating habits.

Since your cat is not currently on any flea and tick preventions, it's important to regularly check her coat for any signs of parasites. Fleas, for example, can cause excessive scratching, hair loss, and even lead to anemia if left untreated. If you notice any small, dark insects or "flea dirt" (which looks like small black specks) in her fur, you'll need to start a flea treatment protocol.

Without knowing her vaccination history, it's difficult to assess her risk for certain infectious diseases. However, keeping up with vaccinations is crucial for preventing many common and serious illnesses in cats. If she is due for vaccinations, make sure to schedule an appointment for those.

Regularly observe your cat for any changes in behavior or physical condition. Lethargy, hiding, or changes in vocalization can be subtle signs that something is not right. Additionally, check for any signs of illness such as vomiting, diarrhea, coughing, sneezing, or discharge from the eyes or nose.

In terms of immediate concerns, if your cat shows any of the following symptoms, she should be taken to a veterinary hospital:

- Difficulty breathing or rapid breathing
- Severe lethargy or unresponsiveness
- Sudden collapse or difficulty walking
- Persistent vomiting or diarrhea, especially if blood is present
- Suspected ingestion of a toxic substance
- Severe injury or trauma
- Inability to urinate or straining to urinate, which can be a sign of a urinary blockage, a critical emergency in cats

Remember to provide a comfortable and safe environment for your cat, with regular playtime and a clean litter box. If you notice any unusual behaviors or symptoms, it's important to keep a detailed record, as this information can be very helpful during a veterinary examination.
