Frankie Muniz announced on social media that his cat flooded and destroyed his 5-story brownstone house. The actor had just returned home from France, where he attended a funeral, when he noticed that nearly his whole home was under three feet of water. The news comes as many celebrities in the Los Angeles area have either lost their homes or had them threatened by the intense Woolsey Fire, which is still burning as of this writing.
Cats are often pretty mischievous animals, but Frankie Muniz's cat is on a whole other level. Muniz vented on social media about the whole ordeal, and he seems to be pretty devasted by the damage that occurred in the 45 hours that he was gone. He had this to say about coming home to find that nearly everything was destroyed.
"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."
Frankie Muniz admitted that he was publicly posting about the destruction of his home to get some emotional support from fans. The actor said, "I've cried more yesterday and today then my whole life combined," recounting the story of coming home to a house that can no longer be lived in. Muniz's girlfriend noted that all of the walls and ceilings have to be torn apart to prevent mold from causing further damage.
While Frankie Muniz is devastated to lose everything, he is pretty lucky that nobody was hurt. However, he didn't reveal if his cat was okay. Muniz went on to say, "I know this sounds ridiculous, but I swear it's true. You wouldn't believe the destruction." Water damage is no joke, and mold is definitely something that you don't want growing in your walls, so Muniz is in the process of removing everything from his home. Thankfully, he has been able to save some of his furniture and everything will be able to go back to normal after a remodel of the house.
Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke and Neil Young all lost their homes due to the Woolsey Fire over the last week. Firefighters have been able to get a good handle on the fire, which shouldn't threaten anymore homes. However, the Camp Fire, which is further up North in California is still causing death and destruction and it's barely contained. At the very least, Frankie Muniz should feel comfort in knowing that his house is still standing and that just about everything can be replaced.
