Understanding that your Abyssinian cat is 10 months old and has been experiencing symptoms for 33 days, which have now ceased, it's important to consider what those symptoms might have been to provide you with the most relevant advice. Since the symptoms are not ongoing, it's possible that they were either self-limiting or resolved due to a change in environment or care.

Without specific symptoms to address, I'll provide some general advice for a young cat's health and well-being. First, ensure that your cat has a balanced diet appropriate for her age and breed. Abyssinian cats are active and may require a diet that supports their energy levels. A high-quality commercial cat food, which is formulated for kittens or young adult cats, would be suitable.

Regular play and exercise are crucial for maintaining your cat's physical health and mental stimulation. Provide a variety of toys and engage in interactive play sessions to keep her active. Scratching posts and climbing structures can also help satisfy her natural instincts and keep her from becoming bored.

Since your cat is not currently on flea and tick prevention, it's advisable to start a preventive regimen. Fleas and ticks can cause a range of health issues, from skin irritation to transmitting diseases. Speak with a local pet supply store or a professional to choose an appropriate product.

Regarding vaccinations, it's important to ensure that your cat is up to date with her shots. Vaccinations protect against common and serious diseases such as feline distemper, calicivirus, and rabies. Consult a vaccine schedule and make sure she receives any necessary boosters.

Keep her environment clean, including her litter box, to prevent any stress-related behaviors and to maintain good hygiene. A clean environment also reduces the risk of infections and parasites.

If you notice any of the following signs, it would be prudent to seek immediate veterinary care: difficulty breathing, persistent vomiting or diarrhea, sudden changes in behavior, inability to urinate or defecate, seizures, or any signs of pain such as vocalizing or reluctance to move.

Remember, regular check-ups are important to monitor your cat's health, even if she appears to be in good shape. These visits can help catch any potential issues early on.
