Malcolm in the middle, cat in the sink.

Frankie Muniz's home is in a state of disarray, and he has his cat to blame.

The 32-year-old actor detailed his recent misfortune in a series of tweets last week, describing how he traveled to France for his uncle's funeral and came home to a flooded house.

"I arrived home from my uncle's funeral to find 4 of my 5 story brownstone home under 3 feet of water," the "Malcolm in the Middle" star tweeted. "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," he continued. "I've cried more yesterday and today then my whole life combined. Forgive me for venting ... I just need some support."

Muniz acknowledged the bizarre nature of his story but swore he wasn't lying.

"I know this sounds ridiculous, but I swear it's true," he tweeted. "You wouldn't believe the destruction."

Muniz' bad luck apparently continued into the weekend, when he announced on Twitter that he also had to evacuate the hotel where he was staying following the flooding in his home.

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

While Muniz didn't share where his flooded home was located, he has shared photos of his pets on Instagram in the past, captioning an April photo of his cat, "Jeri just thinks she owns the place!".

Understanding the Cat
by Kori Nelson

Cats beg to strike up a conversation with their humans, and when you consider that MHS has at least 125 cats in our building daily (plus more in foster homes and off-site adoption sites), the conversations can be a hoot.

Catster.com provides a wealth of information on tricks and tips to help make the conversation bond with your cat(s) stronger. Cats rarely vocalize with other cats (other than to hiss and growl at trespassers); they reserve verbal interaction for humans. Cat language is a complex mix of facial expressions, tail and ear positions and other forms of body language in addition to scent and sound. Cats learn to make demands of us by observing which of their sounds cause which human responses.

Here are a few suggestions on how to better understand your cat:

1. Short meow — “Hey, how ya doin’?”
2. Multiple meows — “I’m so happy to see you. I missed you!”
3. Mid-pitch meow — A plea for something, usually dinner, treats, or to be let outside.
4. Drawnout mrrraaaaaoooow — “Did you forget to feed me? I want dinner NOW!” or a similar demand.
5. Low pitched mraaooww — “You’re so lame. The service around here is awful.”
6. High-pitch RRRROWW! — “OUCH! YOU STEPPED ON MY TAIL!”
7. Purr — Most often a sign of contentedness; but can also be used when in pain or afraid.
8. Hiss — “Steer clear. I’m angry and I’m not afraid to bite.”
9. Clicking sounds — Cats who are tracking prey may make a distinctive clicking sound.

Reading body language is also important when learning how to understand your cat.

1.Tail straight up or straight up with a curl at the end — Happy.
2.Tail twitching — Excited or anxious.
3.Tail vibrating — Very excited to see you.
4.Tail fur sticks straight up while the tail curls in the shape of an N — Extreme aggression.
5.Tail fur sticks straight up but the tail is held low — Aggression or frightened.
6.Tail held low and tucked under the rear — Frightened.

A cat’s eyes are also telling.

1.Dilated pupils — Very playful or excited. It can also indicate aggression.
2.Slowly blinking eyes — Affection, the equivalent of blowing a kiss.

How a cat holds it head can indicate how its feeling.

1.Ears pinned back — Fear, anxiety, aggression.
2. Tongue flicking — Worry or apprehension.
3.Rubbing head, flank and tail against a person or animal -Greeting ritual, ownership claim.
4.Head-butting — Friendliness and affection.
5.Face sniffing — Confirming identity.
6.Wet nose kiss — Affection.
7.Licking — The ultimate sign of affection.
