Re: NIE for kids

Do your children have the residencia (green certificate)? If so,they already have an NIE number. If not, got to your local National Police Station with passport, padron an any other bits of paper you might think necessary.

Re: Strange phone calls and odd number

I've also been getting calls from a 913 tel. no. trying to sell me a television channel subscription. Was getting calls 3-4 times per week and I kept asking them to remove me from their list. Last time they rang (over a week now) I asked them to wait a moment and put the phone next to the TV, turned...

Re: Horchata

You can make many nut milks the same way. I make almond milk (which is delicious in coffee) and coconut milk, but I use honey to sweeten so it's a bit healthier and if you dry out the grounds that are left in your muslin, they can be used in baking. I'm going to try a hazlenut milk and then add some...

Re: Cocoa Powder

Mercadona sell a 100% Cacao which I use for my chocolatey baking. It is in the aisle with the Cola Cao and milky drinks in a gold tin with a dark red square on the label which reads 'Cacao Puro en Polvo'. Personally, I would use melted chocolate for brownies to get that moist squishy texture but you...

Re: How can a person let this happen- warning graphic photo

Poor baby!!! :'( I wish I could take her as I already have a one eyed cat! I wish several lifetimes of bad Karma to whatever b*****d could stick something into a puppy's eye, and to whoever can dump animals with such callous disregard. I don't understand people who can do these things but, I have a ...

Re: Germaline.

I've never used the stuff personally. We wash every wound well in water and apply diluted Hydrogen Peroxide or Aloe Vera. If it needs cleaning again, I use a saline solution. I have 2 very active, accident prone boys who have never had an infected wound and always heal very quickly :)

Re: Help: fleas

Have you tried food grade Diatomaceous Earth? The only precaution is to not inhale it but it's OK if the kitten licks it off which also kills internal parasites. You could also mix some in some wet food to help kill worms. I've washed many cats without any injury, the trick is to scruff them gently....

Re: Borax ?

The EU have banned Borax so I doubt you will have much luck finding it. They sell a Borax substitute that does everything that Borax does EXCEPT kill ants. I wanted to use it in my home made washing detergent and had to change the recipe as I couldn't find any. Ants don't like Aspartame, so you coul...

Re: Pet almost killed by pack of dogs

Yes I agree, make it absolutely clear that you fear there may be reprisals. I would also mention that he only attends to the dogs to feed them twice per week as that is clearly neglect. I would also show photos of the state of your poor dog to the GC, and take photos your wounds (which he can also b...

Re: Pet almost killed by pack of dogs

Seprona are the people who deal with animals. You can contact them by dialling the GC on 062 and ask for Seprona. Alternatively make a denuncia with the GC. This is now a dangerous situation as god forbid a child had been nearby or if they had turned on you!! Pack mentality is very strong no matter ...

Attempted child abductions

Parents in Spain!!
Apparently there is a gang operating in the area who are snatching children. There were 3 attempts yesterday in Estepona. They have a white van and offer children toys and say there are more toys inside. Be extra careful at parks and school areas.

Re: Telling the sex of a cat

Experiencing that at the moment Oliveview, she's driving me crazeeeeee :crazy:
Sadly don't have enough cash at the moment to have her 'done' so I'll have to put up with it for a while longer. With my luck, her sister will start just when I've sorted her out :roll:

Re: Vitamin D deficiency

As few pieces of clothing the better but you should be OK with legs, arms and face exposed, or at least arms and face. People with dark skins need longer sun exposure. I'm sure I read somewhere that late afternoon sun is better because of the different type of UV but I'll have to check on that. Eat ...

Re: Vitamin D deficiency

Wearing sun cream can also stop vitamin D absorbtion. 10 mins in the sun (90% uncovered) daily should provide all the vitamin D you need. If not and you decide to supplement, make sure it is Vit D3 which is easier for the body to uptake.

Re: Telling the sex of a cat

I agree with Gerry. I neuter both males & females but it can get expensive (I'm trying to save to get a squawking female 'done' at the moment). If you tell the vet it is a feral cat then many do a discounted rate & clip the ear. You could also check with any local animal charities if there i...

Re: Telling the sex of a cat

Try and watch it when it's having a pee. If it lifts it's tail and points it's backside at a wall and sprays then it is a male who is scent marking his territory. females usually squat to pee. Cheers Gerry Gerry, I've had MANY male cats and not one has ever peed how you describe, lol!! If you hold ...

Re: CERTIFICADO DE EMPADRONAMIENTO HISTORICO

Just ask for the historical one at the ayuntamiento office and they should have it ready within a couple of days. Your padron may have all the information they need but if they say they want the historical you will get nowhere fast without it, in my experience.
