Neutering Cat- Response


Hi Diane,

I do admire you adopting a cat and being so responsible for its wellbeing. We have “inherited”  2½ cats in a similar manner.

Local veterinarians will give you a good discount if you state that it is a wild or abandoned cat, and you are thinking of taking care of it. Our veterinarian in Nerja reduced the price from 80 € to a more affordable 50€. We used Clinica Veterinaria San Fernando (Calle de Antonio, Millón, Nerja. Tel: 952521838).

I am sure that may other veterinarians will give you such discount if you explain the situation. Veterinarians are well aware of the wild/stray cat problems and most will help anyone willing to fork out money to have them neutered and prevent future generations of stray cats.

Thank you digamites for the amazing response. I have been inundated with more affordable options for me at this moment in time.

Fabulous people out there and a wonderful service this is.
Diane Lang-Sutton



Muggings ?

I am very worried about the muggings that were mentioned in a recent post.  Please could you ask David to give us more information about where this is happening please and whether there is any particular time of day when these despicable people operate.

Thank you

Recommendation Transport

I recently needed to send a parcel to England and to bring one back, and having read all the recommendations for C & A I took advantage of their services and they were great, did it all quickly, efficiently, and at very reasonable cost.  I will definitely use them again.




Recommendation  Car valet & total refurbishment

Warren Philips, contact telephone number: 618346098

I spotted Warrens recommendation on Digame, what a find!!

Warren collected my 1985 Mercedes Benz 280SL, returned it transformed, didn’t recognise the car and can provide before & after photographs to anyone interested.

In my case I asked for everything to be done, chrome removed, interior, Connolly Leather treated, the full nine yards! Not cheap, but amazing value for money for what he has achieved.   John

dog trng

All dogs, large or small, good or badly behaved welcome.
Also, if you are experiencing particular difficulties with your dog,

we can offer One to One Private sessions, to help owners deal with

more specific problems such as :
Aggression – towards other dogs, people & other animals.
Possessiveness – over food, toys & bed etc.
Greeting – barking or jumping up at you, visitors or people you meet on the street.
Excessive barking – this could be due to territorial, guarding behaviour, boredom, frustration or separation anxiety, or a combination of any of these.
Stress / Insecurity – following you or another family member constantly, destructive behaviour when left, barking or howling when left, constant licking or chewing of their own feet or legs, whining, shaking or hiding.
Toileting in the house (excluding young puppies) – scent-marking, urinating or defecating in the house. These are normally signs of stress, anxiety or dominance.
Fear – examples include: walking near traffic, loud noises (thunder / fireworks etc.), strangers, travelling in cars.
Obsessions – examples include: tail chasing, balls or toys, stones or sticks, vacuum cleaners,  brooms, mops, household sprays etc.
Recall issues – chasing cars, cats, cyclists etc, rushing up to other dogs (either to play or fight), stubborn refusal to recall from playing, scenting, hunting or any other distraction.
The Dog Academy assists dog owners in all of these problematic areas.

Would prefer petrol but would also look at diesel.

There was a white Corsa advertised just over a week ago, which would have been fine, but I missed out on that (was too polite; waited until later in the morning to ring so I didn’t wake anyone up  and someone had already bagged it!).
