Frankie Muniz’s Five-Story Home Destroyed By Flood Caused By His Cat

I think it’s fair to say Frankie Muniz is not having a great time lately.

After flying to France to attend the funeral of his uncle, the actor returned to his home in the US to find his five storey house completely flooded thanks to his cat.

We all know cats can be mischievous little things, but to come home and find one of them has completely ruined your home by accidentally turning a tap on? Questions must surely be raised about the loyalty of your pets.

Frankie revealed the destructive saga in a series of tweets, writing:

I arrived home from my uncle’s funeral to find 4 of my 5 story brownstone home under 3 feet of water. Everything I own, destroyed. Every wall, piece of artwork, personal photos, furniture… All because my cat accidentally turned on a sink a few days ago while we were gone.

I’m devastated and exhausted from a tough week with the loss of my Uncle Skip, 45 hours of travel to and from France to walk in to find this disaster. I’ve cried more yesterday and today then my whole life combined. Forgive me for venting.. I just need some support.

Thank God I have @paigey_price to help me get through this. I’d be lost without her. She’s so strong and exactly what I need.

I know this sounds ridiculous, but I swear it’s true. You wouldn’t believe the destruction.

To make matters worse, the actor found himself having to evacuate the hotel he was staying in after the incident due to fire alarms going off.

He wrote:

Just woke up to fire alarms and had to evacuate the hotel we are staying in because of what happened to our house. This has been an eventful week.

The actor and presenter, best known for his time playing the titular character in Malcolm In The Middle, is currently co-hosting Dancing With The Stars Juniors.

However, Frankie has previously revealed that he struggles to remember his time on the Emmy-winning Malcolm In The Middle. In 2012, the actor began suffering from a string of mini-strokes, known as transient ischemic attack, during which blood supply to the brain is temporarily cut off.

Speaking to People, Muniz said he thinks he’s had 15 mini-strokes in total, which seem to have contributed to his memory loss.

He said:

First, I lose my peripheral vision, and I can see people but I can’t recognise them. I can see words but I can’t tell what they say. Then I start going numb. It’s a gross feeling. But I know now when it’s going to come. I usually go lay down and wait [for it to be over].

I’ve gone to so many neurologists who have done every single test. I have no answers as to why it happens. I got so tired of trying to find an answer that I don’t think I’ll search for an answer anymore. I’ve accepted it.

Frankie did add, however, that he is happy in life. After the undiagnosed condition and now the flooded house, let’s hope the guy catches a break soon!
