select * from tbl
where (not col like 'abs%' and not col like 'cat%' and not col like 'f''a%')

not sure if you deliberately meant f-dash-a
otherwise, the last part would be not col like 'f%'

In addition, if you are familiar (or more comfortable) with regular expressions, you could always use something like

SELECT * from tbl WHERE col REGEXP '^(abs|cat|f''a)';
