To the Editor:We are pleased to report the arrival of Master Maximillian Moore, recently emigrated from his native country of Transylvania, the little isolated nation in the center of Europe. He has left the service of the king and came here seeking a career in circus show business (having read that the Ringling Center in nearby Sarasota is famous for this entertainment business). He has settled in the Banyan Street home of the Moore family, trying to adjust to life with P.T. Barnum, a cat twice his size. He is, after all, only 14 pounds.Mas, as he is popularly known, is the offspring of Mssr. German Miniature Pinzer and Lady Dora Malta, a Maltese from that isle.He came about after a romantic night in the garden of the court of the king after an all-night party.Pinzer and Lady Dora were united in an authentic Orthodox canine ceremony, attended by the entire court of the king of Transylvania.Maximillian has yet to find employment in the Big Top, or even in the sideshow venues, but he is gamely going from pillar to post, usually dropping a yellow tear.C’est la vie.In reality, Max has just come from the Suncoast Humane Society after being neutered. The shelter is desperately in need of help.On a recent day, 42 dogs and cats were surrendered. This being Christmas time, remember those at the shelter with a tax-deductible donation.
