UK Mobile phone warning

I know that many people use UK mobile phones here in Spain so I think it is worth passing this warning on. Yesterday I missed a call from a number starting with 0161. I know this only because I received a message in my inbox. There was no number left in call history! Luckily, before dialling back, I decided to check the area code on Google. Immediately I received lots of messages warning of a scam which could immediately do things like take all your credit off pay as you go or steal your info from a smart phone etc. if you answered. The dialling code area is for Manchester so if you know people in that area  it may well be innocent call, but you have been warned!




Pedigree Cats Needing Homes  

Ped Cat 03 Ped cat01 Ped Cat 04Ped cat 02

TAIL Torrox has been involved in a rescue operation of a large number of cats and dogs from an apartment.

We currently have 6 cats in Raza Hotel and we would like to get them fostered as soon as possible and eventually adopted. They are Turkish Van pedigree cats, long haired and very beautiful

We cannot afford to keep them in the cattery so are looking for homes for them. They have not been maltreated and are in good condition but are traumatised. They have been used to living with dogs.

If you would like to come and see them please contact Sue on 629501173 or Gill on 633405560 or email

ogillyarmstead @ gmail.com for further information. We are unsure of their genders.

Flight Partner needed for Dog going to Southern Germany

TAIL Torrox is looking for a flight partner for one of our puppies that is going to Stuttgart. Any south German airport would do. Only certain airlines accept dogs and Ryanair do not. If any digamites could help us we would, be very grateful. We do all the paperwork and booking and take the dog to the airport. All we need is your details and flight number. If you can help or have any contacts, please call Sue on 629501173 or email ogillyarmstead @ gmail.com

We are currently looking for Spanish based potential Carers to work in the UK, whilst experience can be beneficial it is not essential as you will be given full training.
Our Spanish based Live-in Carers find that, not only is Live-in care a rewarding career but it also fits well with Spanish and UK lifestyles, as well as being in the UK for a few weeks supplementing their income

They also get to visit family and friends – it’s the prefect balance.
For information about our forthcoming recruitment and training events are being held in Spain the next event is 12th to 16th Sept

Services Needed-Dog Sitter

A lady who advertises in Digame has let me down , so I am looking for a kind ,reliable , person for November and some time in February ( dates not fixed yet )
2 small dogs and a few cats in a nice house in Torrox Costa within walking distance of the coast ( buses, beach , bars etc ) .

There is a garden and terraces  around the house with plenty of sitting areas and sea view . It’s a very quiet location but not isolated as there are neighbors very near .
The circumstances of my previous regular sitters have changed so that’s why I need to be told of others who will be suitable replacements. I would prefer someone who was around a lot of the time ( maybe retired , homeworker or an artist ) rather than someone who was out working everyday
Thank you in advance
