Is this your Cat with Two Collars pics

cat01 cat2

This cat has been a regular visitor to our house in Pago Manzano Alto, Torrox for the past few months. He is very nervous and I cannot approach him but I managed to photograph him this morning. Despite being involved in some serious fights with our own 4 cats he is a persistent visitor, often seen close to our cat flap.

I’m sure he was fatter when he first appeared here and the fact he is wearing 2 collars makes me think he was owned by someone and is not a typical campo stray cat. One collar is a brown plastic flea collar, and the other is a patterned one with a plastic clip fastening and a ring that looks like it is for attaching a lead.

Opinion of Phone Services Please

I’d appreciate comments from anyone already using this company.

At 37euros per month for unlimited mobile calls & 1GB, plus ADSL & unlimited fixed line calls (plus 60 min to mobiles) it’s considerably cheaper and offers more than than Movistar …. but is this a case of better the devil you know?

Recommendation –Taxi Services

We recently used “Taxi No. 8 – David Jimenez” to take us from Caleta de Velez to the airport and to collect us on our return.

We had seen his advert on the side of a kiosk by the church in Torre del Mar and another near the car park in Supersol (just outside Torre del Mar).

The taxi arrived promptly at our house and the driver was waiting in arrivals on our return.

The price was 50 euros each way.

We thought the price was good and the service excellent.

We initially contacted him by email and he responded promptly

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,    days of the week “Monday”

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.
