Given the information provided, it seems your Abyssinian cat is experiencing some symptoms that have been ongoing for three days but are no longer present. Without specific symptoms listed, I'll provide general advice for monitoring your cat's health and well-being.

Firstly, ensure your cat has a comfortable and quiet space to rest. Cats often hide when they're not feeling well, so a cozy spot can help them feel secure. Keep fresh water available at all times and encourage drinking to prevent dehydration, especially if your cat has had any episodes of vomiting or diarrhea.

Observe your cat's eating habits. If she's not eating as usual, try offering a small amount of a palatable wet food. Sometimes warming the food slightly can make it more appealing. However, if she continues to refuse food for more than 24 hours, this is a concern.

Regularly check your cat's litter box for any changes in urine or stool frequency, color, and consistency. Changes in these can indicate various health issues, from urinary tract infections to digestive problems.

If your cat is grooming excessively or seems uncomfortable, you can distract her with gentle play or a new toy. However, if the skin appears red, swollen, or there's hair loss, these could be signs of an allergy or skin infection.

Since your cat is not currently on flea and tick prevention, it's important to regularly check her coat for any signs of parasites. Fleas, in particular, can cause itching, redness, and discomfort. If you find evidence of fleas, a vet-recommended flea treatment would be necessary.

In the absence of vaccination information, it's crucial to keep your cat indoors to minimize the risk of infectious diseases. If she's an indoor-outdoor cat, consider transitioning her to an indoor-only lifestyle to protect her from potential health threats.

Watch for any signs of respiratory distress, such as rapid breathing, coughing, or wheezing. These could indicate a respiratory infection or other serious conditions that would require immediate veterinary attention.

If your cat shows any signs of pain, such as limping, reluctance to move, or vocalizing more than usual, these are red flags. Pain can be indicative of injuries, arthritis, or other internal issues.

Lastly, if your cat's behavior changes drastically, such as hiding more than usual, aggression, or sudden lethargy, these could be signs of illness or pain that warrant a veterinary visit.

Remember, while these tips can help you monitor and care for your cat, if you notice any persistent, recurring, or worsening symptoms, it's important to seek veterinary care. If you have any additional questions, please don't hesitate to come back to us! Thank you.
