Well we had hoped that nude dancer would have come around by now, but still no sign and no word from him. The hearing is less than a week away. We tried to notify him of the hearing by registered letter, but since he doesn''t live here, he never received it. Yesterday, I discovered that that isn't enough. Apparently, we have more homework to do. We need to call a "huissier" to come pick up the papers, knock on his door, leave and write up a report stating what we already know. (That he's not there.) Then the judge will deem us as having adequately tried to notify him. Another $50 hoop to jump through, and for what? I guess to "witness" and certify our claim. Anyway, huissier translates to "usher", so I really don't get it. But the huissier is coming today.
We're starting to ponder all of nude dancer's belongings in the garage. I have a feeling he has disappeared and started anew so he can't be found. The guy really didn't have a whole lot to his name, a couple tvs and clothes was basically it. But the clothes were really nice, and we do have the same coat size. So perhaps some new wardrobe items will come from this.
I did follow up with the spca. Nude dancer never claimed his cat, but the cat was adopted by someone. So that's good news.
