Laundry room in the Vassall-Craigie-Longfellow House / NPS, Longfellow House-Washington's Headquarters National Historic Site

The LAUNDRY room is the hub for our family pets. Our gray and white cat likes to sleep in a wash tub. My sister, Edith, wrote about our cat in a magazine we produce called, <em>The Secret</em>, "She would generally make a mattress for herself with the clothes- just after they had been ironed. This of course was not allowed and many a fight she had with the cook about it." Well, our shy feline may be hiding on this busy day.
