Wanted – someone to look after my cat for one year!

I am a Spanish local who has taken a job in the UK from September!   I have a beautiful, house-trained, affectionate cat, spayed, very well looked after, who needs a home for a year, maybe less if I can get her across to the UK earlier!  It’s just too difficult to find a house or room to rent with a cat!  Can anyone help please?

Responses to the Bank Issue

(1) Regarding Email Bank Details

Amerinoc is a webhosting site. Emails such as the one you received are “phishing” spam emails. They want your banking info so they can scam you.

Ignore the email unless you do business with Amerinoc.

In your email service you can open the email but do NOT click on any links in the email or you risk infection.

Once open click the SPAM button so repeat sends of the email will go to your SPAM folder.

I recieved an email from Unicaja asking for income details
Could either email fax or take into the bank
I took mine into the bank just incase it was anything fishy .. However they took copies and all seems to be ok!
Seems to be all to do with money laundering and wanting  to know where the deposits originate ‘     Sue


Services Available – Laptop, Tablet – Software Repairs and Maintenance.

Do you have a Windows system that has become unstable, sluggish, or particular programs no longer function correctly or as smoothly as they used to? You may have corrupted software or you may have even caught a virus or some other Malware and these can often be a nightmare to remove. Your system may require a thorough health check.

I can provide a complete Windows overhaul, including a Virus and Malware cleansing service.

I live in Torrox Costa but can travel any reasonable distance.

Please call Steve for advice or assistance: 634347055 or Email: sfmay@hotmail.com



Services Needed –- Abogado

In the recent past, a number of Digame readers recommended an Abogado in the Torrox area. They had been very satisfied with the advice and help given by the Lawyer in question.

This matter is regarding a land dispute and there is a need to set the “proceedings” rolling sooner rather than later. If someone recalls the details of this Lawyer, or indeed can recommend another in the Axarquia please reply to the Digame site as other folk may be interested. Thanks in advance.

What a good result on calling satco  who incidentally are at the farmers market on Tuesdays. After explaining our problem  they arranged to call the next morning

They were on time , polite and professional. The problem was a tricky one , but they sorted it out and replaced the problem parts and explained a few items that were new to me and were clean and tidy , highly recommended.

Recommendation Best cordless vacuum cleaner–

(1)  In response to the request about what and where to buy.  My hairdresser, Suzi and her family and friends had all been buying the Bosch Athlet 25.2 + tools and she said it would be perfect for me as

I cannot physically use a normal vac.

I checked on Amazon.es and bought it.  Including the tools it was under 250 euros and I have to say it is probably the best thing we have bought for a very long time.

Simple, lightweight, long lasting, powerful.

I could go on but I wont.  I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Do not go for the lower powered one as that does not equate to a normal vac but the 25.2 does.  Enjoy, I use my daily instead of a sweeper.  Mave
