Mom Smithereened Her Camera

I can't believe this happened. Just when she was finally starting to take pictures of Me in our new house, with My new outside. Look at what Mom did to her camera.....

Can you believe it? She was outside taking pictures of some dumb plant she found, but didn't want to bring the camera back inside because her shoes were all muddy. Or so she says. So she set it on the hood of her car. When she finally did come inside, she forgot all about it. Later, she left for Lowes and the library and guess what. Yup, she left the camera on her car and didn't realize it until she got home and couldn't find her camera again.

Well. You never saw such a panic. Then, all of a sudden she remembered that she left in on the car. She looked all over the yard and then jumped in her car and took off again. When she finally got home, she had the camera as you see it above. Sadly the battery was missing, but the memory chip was still intact....

Which is a good thing because there are pictures of Me on it. The question now is, how is she going to get them off of it?

BTW, you can see some (mostly catless) photos of our new house and outside on Mom's new blog. Click here for a peek.

ouch! What did mom use to take the picture of the camera? Will that take the memory card? I'm assuming that her computer doesn't have a memory card reader in it...if that's the case you could buy a card reader. Or just get a new camera. I hope we get to see you in pictures soon.

Oh no!!! Well, at least she saved the pictures of you! That's what's most important! ;-)

Renee, I used my scanner to get those images. I also bought a new camera. Thank goodness for eBay.

Cameras can be replaced, Rascal -- but not the precious photos of the precious cat!

You can take the card to Wal-mart or other film developing place that can read the card to make prints and/or put them on a cd for you.

Oh no! That would be something my human would do! I am glad she was able to rescue the photos though!

Oh no! We are glad the memory card got saved. Mum has got two cameras, an old one she puts in her pocket when we go for walks and her better one. She uses a card reader for both of them rather than upload the photos direct from the camera. She says the reader is four or five times faster than doing it through the camera. We have just been catching up with your last couple of posts and we are really happy to see your bad old cancer has gone. Yayyyy!!!!

Oh no, oh no!! We are so sorry to hear about the camera. You can take the memory card to a store like Walmart, or Walgreens, Rite Aid, and they have these photo kiosks where you can put a memory card in to retrieve your photos!

Walgreens and Wla-Mart can get teh pictures off the card. Walgreens will even out them on a CD for her. Not sure if Wal-Mart will or not.

How Horrible! Would the camera be covered by your mom's auto insurance...after all, it was an accident...right?
