Rescue crews found Margaret Page on Wednesday. Page said she ran out of food about a week ago and was drinking water from a nearby creek.
The 41-year-old was barely able to speak and lost a third of her body weight.
Page's cat stuck by her side throughout the entire ordeal, even as rescuers carried her down the mountain.
Police are trying to figure out why a search wasn't launched until two weeks after Page's family reported her missing.
