Celebrities, they’re just like us (well, sometimes). And even the rich and famous aren’t immune to everyday struggles such as let’s say…an accidental house flooding.

This was the reality for former Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz, who says his five-story brownstone recently sustained major flood damage. No, he didn’t leave the water running. No, his hot water heater didn’t break. The culprit? His cat Jeri. 

Huh? Stay with us. In a series of tweets, the 32-year-old actor explained how he returned home (from his uncle’s funeral may we add) to discover several floors of his home under water. The whole story is pretty unbelievable.

And if that wasn’t enough…

Luckily he had some support on this one.

We have to say it does make for a pretty crazy story. Forget “the dog ate my homework,” for Frankie Muniz it looks like his new go-to excuse is “the cat flooded my house.”

Stay strong, Frankie, we’re sure Jeri didn’t mean it.
