Based on the information provided, it seems that your 10-month-old Abyssinian cat has been experiencing some symptoms over the past 33 days, which have now ceased. Without specific symptoms listed, I'll provide general advice for monitoring and maintaining the health of a young cat.

Firstly, ensure that your cat has a balanced diet appropriate for her age and breed. A high-quality kitten food is usually recommended until the age of one year. This will support her growth and immune system. Fresh water should always be available.

Next, regular grooming is important, especially for an Abyssinian, which has a fine coat that can be prone to matting. Gentle brushing can help remove loose hair and reduce the risk of hairballs.

Environmental enrichment is also key. Provide scratching posts, toys, and opportunities for climbing and exploring to keep your cat mentally and physically stimulated. This can prevent behavioral issues and promote overall well-being.

Since your cat's vaccination and flea and tick prevention statuses are not provided, it's crucial to stay up-to-date with these preventative measures. Vaccinations protect against common and serious diseases, while flea and tick preventatives safeguard against parasites that can cause a range of health issues.

If your cat shows signs of lethargy, loss of appetite, vomiting, diarrhea, or any other sudden changes in behavior or physical condition, these could be indicators of illness and warrant immediate attention. In particular, if she stops using the litter box, has difficulty breathing, or shows signs of pain (such as hiding or vocalizing more than usual), these are urgent situations that require prompt veterinary care.

Keep an eye on her litter box habits as changes in frequency, color, or consistency of urine and feces can indicate health issues. Also, ensure she has a quiet, comfortable space to retreat to when she needs rest.

Lastly, regular veterinary check-ups are essential for maintaining your cat's health. Even if she appears healthy, annual exams can detect underlying issues before they become serious.

If you notice any new or recurring symptoms, or if your cat's behavior changes significantly, it's important to seek veterinary care. Remember, prompt attention to any health concerns can make a significant difference in your cat's well-being.
