She was just given to us by mom's friend and basically it's our very first pet to own.
She's scared and won't come out under the bed. We gave her water but still no response.
How to actually take care of cats?

Just stay in the room with her, but ignore her. Sit on the floor and read, play on your laptop, watch tv. When she comes out, just let her be. Don't try to pet her right away. After she shows an interest in you, speak very gently and softly to her but again, don't try to pet her yet. This way doesn't take long at all, her curiosity will draw her to you. Once she starts hanging near you, hold your hand out to her, but no pets yet. She will sniff and move on. You'll know when you can pet her. Play with her once she comes out with a toy. You are teaching her you are harmless and fun. This may be time consuming but it works.
