Bumped in the head at four in the morning. Waking up to Riley licking your ear an hour later. Unable to type at the computer without him jumping onto your lap. Following you into the bathroom, into the kitchen, and everywhere else. Giving pose after adorable pose. Trying to steal the show at every turn. These are conditions that lead one to ask "How cute is too cute?" There are websites devoted to this issue, but Riley forces us to live with it on a daily basis.
Here he is on a late summer day, posing between the blooms of two oncidium hybrids: Colmonara Wildcat 'Green Valley' and C.M. Fitch Izumi. Too cute? It's possible.
