Missing Hiker Huddled With Cat

Missing hiker Margaret Page, who had been lost in a New Mexico national forest for three and a half weeks before being found this week, snuggled in a blue sleeping bag with her cat to survive the below-freezing temperatures at night. The 41-year-old Page, who has a history of mental illness, was found Wednesday malnourished but well-hydrated, as there was a creek nearby for drinking water. Page ran out of food some time ago. Her cat Miya, on the other hand, went hunting. “Her cat was in better shape than she was,” said Marc Levesque, New Mexico State Police search-and-rescue incident commander.
