Sigmund Freud and Cats

“Time spent with cats is never wasted.” 

Where did Freud say the above quote?

The above quote is widely attributed to Sigmund Freud on quotation websites, but there is no evidence that he ever said it. In fact, he even wrote to his friend Arnold Zweig:

“I, as is well known, do not like cats.”1

That’s why I don’t trust him.

Meanwhile, the quote continues to spread. Which is fine by me. As long as cats also continue to spread.
