Contrary to popular belief, Sigmund Freud (the father of psychiatry) did NOT coin this quote.
It has been attributed to him erroneously.
In a letter to his friend Arnold Zweig he wrote: "I, as is well known, do not like cats".
As a matter of fact, Freud was an avid dog fancier and had many throughout his life and even in his psychiatric practice.
One of his dogs, Jofi (pictured below) would know when the session was up, rise from his resting position on the floor and leave the room. When she did that, Freud told his patient that the session has ended.
TIME SPENT WITH A CAT IS NEVER WASTED – COLLETTE
However, COLLETTE (pictured above) DID say: “Time spent with a cat is never wasted” a slightly different version of the Freud attributed quote.

A cat is a purring parcel of paradox,
a cunning collection of contradictions.
A cat is lazy and busy, dainty and savage,
affectionate and aloof, greedy and finicky,
sound asleep in one instant,
and awake and stalking in the next.
A cat is a limp puddle of softness,
surrounding a steel-hard
and ever-alert set of muscles. ...
A cat has the face of a pansy flower,
and is just as velvety.
A cat holds infinity in her eyes,
and your heart in her front paws.
- Leonore Fleischer
