I have just found your thread, and you are a hero for taking care of the little mite. Have your parents come round to the idea yet ?
Your cat looks beautiful ! I am not sure of the breed, but it reminds me of the cats I saw in Tunisia, so don't be too worried if she always looks skinny, they are just like that. I guess it's some kind of arab/african trait to be skinny, long-legged and big-eared (as a cat
Having been to Tunisia several time, I think I know what you mean, regarding peoples attitude towards cats. They like them to keep the bugs at bay, but would never consider them in a european/american pet-like way, and I guess with the current situation getting to an american Vet is not exactly easy.
Let me know, if I can help you with cat-food. It will be too expensive to send wet food, but I may be able to send dry cat food out to you. The only trouble is, that I can not guarantee that it doesn't contain any pork.
How is the cat doing with cow's milk ? Has it got very smelly soft poo (kinda like toothpaste), or just slightly smelly normal poo ? I am amazed that you can't find goat's milk in the UAE, but then I am guessing from my experience in Tunisia, where goat's milk is quite common (up to the point that cow's milk is actually imported for tourists, as they don't tend to like goat's milk in Tea...).
Cat litter, you will have to improvise. It's too expensive to send (it's too heavy to carry home, lol), but fine sand is good, as it clumps. You can also use all the other suggestions from before, I can send you a scoop.
How is the ringworm situation ? It's a very common infection and school kids get it occasionally. You may eve have had it as a kid. Not sure how common it is in towns, but my daughter managed to catch it in London !

Anyway, enough rambling. I am glad you have given the cat a chance and please let us know how things go. She is definitely georgeous !
