    yesterday I was in a house, as it fell. I just had unmounted my beetle to feed it in that moment.
    As the house fell, I got teleported to a corner (SE corner of the house), remains of the graphic were still blocking the area for me partially and my beetle was gone. No follower slots any more and the pet was also not in the stable.

    The other issue - we used to be able to use an axe on water throughs, which remained from fallen houses. Since some time this doesn't work any more, I get the message You must use this in your house or something like that.
    Since these things still seem to block placements, this gets annoying and creates more unnecessary work for GMs.

    Common bug with pack animals getting "eaten" by the house.

    I just always stay outside and let everyone risk it.

    IDOCs have eaten pets for a while now, I've been lucky and never had it personally happen to me though. The graphic from the house remaining on your screen is annoying, it is because the house has become cached. I've had idocs where I had to leap over parts of houses to try to get to items, then I got smart and would completely close out my client before recalling to the idoc. That also helps cut down on idoc lag. Totally close out the client, and do not leave your character logged out at the falling house, and that will clear up that issue.
