Kittens needing homes

multiple kittens

Four kittens rescued from the helipad in Periana are looking for a home after a difficult start in life. They are about 5 weeks old. They were found last week in a plastic sack in the sun and left to die. Fortunately they have all been rescued and are now safe in a foster home together. They have been vet checked and treated for fleas and worms. They are all very affectionate and not shy at all. Please contact nolwenn33 @ gmail.com if interested.




Lost – Golden Retriever 


2 years old female dog golden retriever escaped today from her house in Frigiliana campo. She was tied with a rope when she run away  so maybe she has still the rope on her neck. She has not chip.
She is very shy, if you can see her don’t try to get just please call me  697708887 or call APA Nerja.  If the rope is still there then it could be easier to catch her but not without it . I am not the owner but she knows me very well so she will be fine with me.
Thank you very much for your help!!!



Home Broken into

Yesterday lunch time a country property in Carispite, Sayalonga was broken into.  The owners think that the house was being watched as it happened just 10 minutes after they left the house.   Please everyone be vigilant and notice anything out of the ordinary,  take a photo of any cars (and registration number) that look out of place and look out for your neighbours houses and listen for odd noises.  If we all look out for each other lets hope we can make it difficult for the bad guys.



Leo Needs a Home


Leo is a beautiful little boy who was abandoned on the side of a busy road.

He has bee to see the vet and has been treated for cat flu with antibiotics and is now very fit and well.

He is approximately 7 weeks old and needs to have a good home.

He is very cuddly and playful.

Can you give him that good home?

Please telephone 606459894 or 665415901 for full details.



(1)Thanks to Gordon for the new NIE info. The link www.policia.es works fine but the link    www.extranjeros.empleo.gob.es  says ‘server not found’.

(I tried various VPN country locations but no difference).

However, if you Google  Form NIE Ex-15 you can then get the PDF copy of the form.

It looks like you can fill it in and print it but not save it as a filled in form?

Cheers, Keith, Travelin’ wotsapninatgmaildotcom

(2)Having read on Digamextra yesterday about how to obtain your N.I.E. number  . I think many of you would also like to know there is a Citizens advice bureau Spain online. It is a valuable site to bookmark. The Documents Library is a treasure trove of all those endless ‘certificates” N.I.E. Residency etc which are needed here, all come with an explanation on how to fill in your details too. Further in the libaray is advice on Spanish law, property, rental agreements to name but a few. You can spend many a happy hour there just browsing and learning . You are also able to ask for advice and you do get an answer too!




Is there a German Digame ?

Does anyone know if there is anything similar to Dígamextra in German?

To reserve a table call La Taperia 655 43 26 59, Pericos 952 55 37 39 or Casa Paco on 952 51 60 77

Jukebox Bandits are a covers band consisting of Rod Jones on keyboards and Mitch France on acoustic and electric guitars, mandolin, penny whistle and vocals.

They play an eclectic mix of pop, rock and folk standards from Britain, America, Ireland and Spain. From Dire Straits to The Dubliners, from Manu Chao to Jason Mraz. The music starts mellow (whilst people are eating), gradually picking up the tempo and culminating with the dance set including standards like Van Morrison’s “Brown Eyed Girl”, REM’s “Losing My Religion” and The Mavericks’ “Dance the Night Away”.

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.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
