The “Cutest Dog Competition” is getting…ugly. The owner of Momo, named after Mozart, is crying foul that Momo is running neck and neck with a new challenger, Stephen Colbert el dos, a Pomeranian Chihuahua mixed-breed puppy from Atlanta, Georgia. Why cry foul? Cara McCool said. “It’s just unfortunate. MoMo is named after a famous person too, but he’s dead.”

A Frederick County woman could face animal cruelty charges after officials found 192 live cats and seven dead ones in a mobile home.

Sheriff’s Office Major Robert Eckman said 58-year-old Linda McLaughlin is the owner of the cat-filled double-wide trailer. Eckman said the animals living in McLaughlin’s home also showed the effects of neglect and inhumane conditions.

McLaughlin could face charges of animal cruelty and animal neglect. She was not present when her cats were confiscated and has been hospitalized in Prince William County since Friday.

Officials said Wednesday that the home contains so much cat waste and cat hair that it will probably be demolished.”
