Homes Needed Please – 

kitt01 kitt02

Two days ago someone left these cuties near the dumpster and I took them to my house.

They are very lovely and friendly, but the problem is that I can’t keep them because I already have a cat and they’re always fighting.

So please, if anyone want a kitten contact me at: pizzicatss @ gmail. com



Services Needed – Transport needed from/to Malaga airport

My mom and I are going to pick up my friend arriving at Malaga airport on Thursday, 30th of June  around 11 a.m..

Is there anybody going to or coming back from Malaga airport around that time? We can leave from Torrox Costa or Torrox Park.

There will be 2 people going to Malaga airport and 3 people coming back.

One ride would help us out.

If you can give us a ride please email me at

jantytgat at live dot co dot uk.

Thank you very much!



Services Needed- New Seat Belt

I wonder if anyone knows where I can get a new seatbelt (not replacement) fitted, for the middle seat of my jeep in the Velez Malaga area preferably but will travel.  Recommendations or ideas would be very much appreciated.

Many Thanks   josywade at outlook (dot)com

Cattery accommodation required.

Looking for good accommodation that is value for money.

Services Available Did You Take Equity Release?

Several years ago, financial advisors sent their representatives to interview home owners, offering an Equity Release plan secured on their property.

In some instances these contacts were from a sign-in list at a banking seminar aimed at ex-pats.

The Seminar offered taxation advice on how to minimise or negate inheritance tax.
One of the lending banks was a name so well known, people felt reassured.

Are you in this scheme?
I am trying to establish contact with individuals or groups who may be represented in this matter. I am endeavoring to establish where this case is.

How far along it may be.

In some instances the law has found in favour of the home owners, having deemed the plan to contravene Spanish law. nullifying the contacts, returning  to the “Status Ante”.
Please contact me, with an absolute guarantee of your privacy.

We need to adopt a united front.

I believe we can win back our homes and our liberty.

Thank you for taking the time to read this entry on Digame.

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”

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 –

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