Question Rescued Cat

My roommate and I recently moved in to a new neighborhood. Our gray tabby got out on the 29th and we have ben looking every where, made flyers, walked around the neighborhood every day and we're still trying to find him. Any tips about that would be great but.... we called the animal control facility looking for him and she had a similar looking cat didn't know the sex. I went to look and it wasn't him but I fell in love with the cat and didn't want it to be euthanized so I adopted it last Thursday. She is so scared and pitiful from everything that has happened I'm not sure if she will come around she has been hiding under a bed and hasn't come out to eat but has used the litter box. This is what I'd love some advice on its not my first cat but it's the first scared pitiful one any advice on how to help her adjust??

some cats are scared and it takes a while for them to come around, i would just put food under the bed or close so it knows where it is and wait a few days before doing much with it she'll come around don't worry its normal for cats to hide in a new place for a while

I agree.
Give her a few days.She will come around.Talk to her gently,so she knows you won't harm her.
