Is "Schrodinger's Cat" the wrong interpretation for Copenhagen Interpretation?

So when people try to explain uncertainty of something with Schrodinger's Cat, are they using the incorrect analogy to describe the moment of uncertainty?

Depends on what they want to illustrate with it. Do you mean state of uncertainty? It's actually a paradox that cosmologists face every single day. No down-to-Earth physicists worry about it, because they use the quantum projection, or collapse, or wave packet reduction, as you may want to call it. They know whether the cat is dead or alive.

As to cosmologists... who was looking at the universe when this or that happened, you know?

It's not useful for anything, it's just there, looking us in the face. It's a pain in the brain.

So, did Schrodinger create his analogy as an attack on quantum superposition,

Yes.

In short, did he agree or not?

No.

I dug the correct interpretation out of the dustbin of history from an old Hitchikers Guide.
