Happy & Healthy Kittens – Free to Good Homes

We have 4 charming kittens, born May 5th, who are now ready to be re-homed. They are fully litter-trained and weened off Mum, and they happily eat both wet and dry food. Everyone is in great shape; they love a good play and a cuddle, and they’re all very friendly. We have a real pick-n-mix of colours to choose from: calico, tabby, tortoiseshell and ginger+white!

We’ll be sad to see them go as they are such great characters and have given us so much joy, but we know that there will be some folks out there who can give them as much love as we have.

We have a website where you can find more information, as well as photos and videos:http://mimiskittens.xyz

If you are interested, please email us at hola@mimiskittens.xyz or send us a Whatsapp message on +44 7437 922045.




Beware if like me, you use Dropbox. Scammers are sending out apparently innocuous messages telling you that you have received a new message in your Dropbox and providing a link for you to open it. DON’T until you have verified that it actually is from there. For example, I received one this morning which said it was from Dropbox but was actually from a Hotmail. To verify this, tap/click on the header of the email and view the details of the sender. If it doesn’t have the word @Dropbox as the sender, it’s a hoax. Opening a link is likely to download malware, viruses, trojan horses and all sorts of evil nasties to your device, at worst allowing them to take control of it and at best confirming to them that your email address exists (which they can then sell on or continue spamming).

Copying anyone into emails using the cc field is also bad practice – always use bcc if you’re sending to groups of people, as spammers can also get your recipients’ email addresses from this.

Ibex Spotting- Criticism

This is one of those (many) advertisements where we are expected to know a location. Other than being in a national park (Tejeda etc?) we don’t know where it was. Pureto Collado means absolutely nothing to me, and I should think to most of your readers who aren’t in that area.

Please, if you expect your posts to have any impact, whether you’re selling, buying, or just informing us, tell us *exactly* where you are!

Local Water Provider – Patamalara

Everybody who lives in some parts the campo, gets water probably from Patamalara in Torrox Pueblo.

On the big water deposit with my neighbour was a paper on it and it says that every member before 31 July 2017 has to prove at the office of Patamalara that they are the legal owner of the property.

If not, then you will be closed off from the water.

Be warned!  Peter

Services Wanted- Taxi Transfer

Taxi Service from Riogordo Campo to Malaga Airport needed.

I need to organise an airport transfer for a relative staying at my campo house, however we do not have an address in the normal sense, he doesn’t know the area and does not speak Spanish if the driver were to get lost.

So, does anyone know of a local/reliable/English speaking taxi pick up service who we can use?

We can send Google maps location references and directions in advance.
