October 7, 2012--Hi, this is Mikey, the DCIN FUNdraising Spokescat. This Naffle item comes from Auntie Wendy, de lady dat helps DCIN wid ground transports on I-95 and as ground support when kitties fly through Newark airport. Wendy and her hubby Uncle Mike have met and loved on lotza DCIN kitties.

Auntie Wendy's Dad, Philip B. Schnering, is a really gud artist and sculptor. Wendy tells you about her Dad as an artist below. Wendy's Dad died this year :(( and Wendy offered me one of his printz to Naffle for DCIN.

Dis iz a limited edition print (from an original watercolor painting) that iz individually signed and numbered (#12 of 50). De print size (including signature area) is 15" x 20-1/2", and de paper size is 16-1/2" x 22-1/2". The print iz not matted or framed; it takes a standard mat with a 16" x 20" opening.
