cat in, cat out - or both

thanks wikimedia commons {{PD-old}}
On a fine day like this, why pick in or out when one can sit on the stoop enjoying the best of both worlds?  This  serene early 20th century oil on canvas is by Filippo Corelli.  I can't dig up anything else about him so far, but this piece is in the National Museum of Fine Arts in Valletta, Malta.  The museum doesn't seem to have its own site, but is part of a larger one for all Malta's cultural institutions that you may really enjoy - Heritage Malta.  Go explore!
