From the recording Our Own Paradise

This song is about ‘checking out’ this other person you’ve been ‘hanging out’ with for a little while. Both cats are cool, and like their personal space. After awhile, after deciding that the other cat is safe and fun to be around, the thumbs up is given to continue to hang out in subtle ways. After all, both cats are very independent and tipping the scales that would indicate that one or another ‘needs’ the other to ‘stick around’, would just not be cool. A fine line of interest and indiffernce is the key.
