Matthew Morrison has had to flee his California home after discovering rats have moved on in.
The Glee star spoke to The Billy Bush Show and describedhow he went away for a few days, only to return to find his home covered in rat feces and was determined to catch the rodents.
“I came home and World War III broke out in my house. There was rat poop all over my house when I got home,” he said. “I go upstairs and there was a huge rat in my bed. And like, poop and feces all over my bed.”
The 32-year-old actor had a 6am call time for Glee the next morning and said, “it was just the worst night ever.”
“I tried to catch the rat and he darted away. And I kind of cornered him in this thing. I thought he was dead on my bed,” he said.
“So I put a bunch of plastic bags on my hand, and I went to grab him and he just darted off. He was on the windowsill, kind of just eyeing me. We were playing cat and mouse – or Matt and rat, I guess.”
After catching the house-invader, Morrison said he “ran downstairs in my underwear and threw him in this far away trash can.”
But a restless night was set to follow, with another unpleasant surprise – another rat.
“I get up, run over and turn the light on, and this bug guy is on my nightstand and he jumps on my bed,” Morrison explained. “And he’s looking at me like, ‘What are you doing on my bed?’ He’s looking at me like I’m the a**hole.”
Morrison quickly checked into a hotel and is now on the hunt for a new place.
“This is my house that I own. Now I want to put it back on the market!”
But who is going to want to buy a rat-infested house?
How disturbing. Hopefully he either conquers the rats or finds a new house soon.
