Missing- Cat  

Miaaing Cat Miro

Miró was last seen in the Pago El Cerro area of Competa, on the 2nd June.

He is a beautiful, happy, affectionate little boy, castrated and has only one eye.

Please message me if you know of his whereabouts, we really miss him.

Thank ou very much – telf: Lisa 642 386 312


Available –, a soft , lollopy, gentle, gigante puppy.   


I say “giant” because she weighs fifteen kilos at five months old !  She is at that age where her beautiful, shiny coat looks as if belongs to someone, at least one size larger.
I found her three day ago, wandering on the Algarrobo to Competa road. near the Guardia.

The ladies of the houses nearby say she had been there for four days.

They have been feeding her. No. chip and no collar.

Carolina, my Vet, thinks that it´s probable that the owners bought a tiny puppy four months ago, but when, like Topsy, she grew and grew and grew, they abandoned her.

She may well be lost, as she is in such good condition, but I don’t think so.
She is very soft, very intelligent & house trained,

Apart from understandable bouts of puppishness, she is a very quiet, gentle, intelligent pooch.  She would make a wonderful companion but sadly , not for me. I have five dogs with whom she gets on very well, but Carolina has convinced me that, at my age, i should not be taking on another puppy.

She is probably right. Although I do object to “at my age” !
So…. Reluctantly, i am looking for a home for this lovely girl.

You, whoever you are, will love her, I promise.
PS. She is the one on the left.

Pics omitted yesterday – Editor

We need to downsize on our large car, a Renault Vel Satis 2.2dCi. Ideally we’d exchange with a cash adjustment for a smaller, more manageable car (automatic would be excellent), but could simply sell. ‘(‘Having five in the Vel Satis is like having five in the ballroom of the Grosvenor’).
This is a very unusual car – other than mine, I’ve only seen 2 in the last 4 years – and it was once compared in a review to a BMW 5 series in levels of equipment and comfort. Mine was registered in France in 2005 and matriculated here the following year (as it’s so unusual, I’ve put links to some reviews below). Recent repairs have included a new clutch and flywheel, new turbo pipes and electrics cables, new injector, new steering column sensor, and it has been serviced by the main dealers in Vélez.
It has the usual small scratches plus a larger dent to the rear bumper – see photos. Because of the latter, I’m prepared to bring the price down by €500 to €3,500.
Please contact advertiser @ outlook. es.
