Kitten Culling in Archez

For the past three /four weeks there have been 10 or more kittens born in and around the plot of land next to the Town hall in Archez. I adopted one of these kittens with an eye problem.

Last week someone callously killed all the kittens according to a resident living nearby  by hitting them over the head. The kittens -whose only crime was to be born in Archez – were then left dead or dying on the ground in the compound.  Their little bodies can be seen riddled with maggots.

In the heat of the day they are a health hazard. I don’t know if this was an official culling or conducted by the land owner .

There is supposed to be Law in Spain regarding this sort of disgusting behaviour. I appreciate that the Feral cat numbers need to be restricted – but surely in the 21st century killing any animal by hitting it over the head is not acceptable. Humane methods should be adopted if necessary.

Sadly yet more dogs in need of a home

Both found abandoned and kindly adopted by my Spanish neighbour.

He already has two dogs and can’t cope with 2 more so we are looking for forever homes for them. Both are bitches, vaccination and ready to be re homed.

Having just spent some time with them this morning I can say they are gorgeous dogs, submissive to other dogs, playful but also very calm despite only being 4 months old.

I think they might be German Shepherd Crosses and are currently in Almayate. The Tan one is smaller than the black one.

If you are interested in either of them then please contact Ramon on 662 301 801.

If your Spanish isn’t great then feel free to contact me and I will give you my number.

We will also be at Trapiche market on Tuesday in case you would like to have a look at them . Carol macdonald 55 @ g mail dot com (no spaces)



Help with hacking or whatever it is…

Someone appears to be taking over various bits of my internet accounts –

looks like cloning access to Endesa, Movistar and now Fbook  (eg telling me I need a new password but Microsoft tell me it’s a fraudulent email, a “personalised offer” from Movistar including name of person I dealt with when recently changed contract … ) I don’t know how to stop it – any recommendations?

PS changing address would be a nightmare but if there’s no alternative…..

Response from Dr Laptop:-


First: If requesting tech assistance on DigameXtra, please include full computer  info: Make, model, operating system and a detailed description of the symptoms. For instance, terms “various bits”and “cloning access”, are not very helpful. I don’t mind providing free advice, but I need as many clear details as you can provide.

There is no quick fix for hacked accounts and infected computers.

Immediately change the passwords to all the accounts you mention, and also your comp log-in password. Use a different password for each, with a minimum 12 characters including small letters, capitals, numbers and a punctuation mark.

Next, you need to have your computer professionally disinfected. A deep cleaning by a professional, not just a simple virus scan by a local hobbyist.

Of course, I can do this for you, or get it to another qualified repair shop.

Whoever cleans it for you can explain in detail what further actions will be necessary once they get an idea of what infected it. It is too much to put in an email. If you are told that your entire hard disk needs to be erased and a new copy of Windows installed find a different repair shop. That shouldn’t be necessary, it’s just easier to do than a proper cleaning and some techs are untrained in proper malware removal and recovery. However if you have a heavily infected Mac, a system re-install may be necessary.

What Was on –Air show in Torre del Mar Parking

Birgit was quite right yesterday about the noise of the air show but not about parking so it is a pity if anyone was put off by her warning of parking chaos.  We attended both days last year and this weekend and did not have a problem as all the open waste ground just past the camp site behind the beach is opened up for parking at just €1.  It had attendants organising the parking and there was plenty of room on both days.  Too late for anyone this year but worth bearing in mind for next as it really is worth a visit.
