In a recent interview with People magazine, the former Grey’s Anatomy star admitted that she’s currently playing mom to seven canines — a fact that makes taking care of her two human children just a tad more challenging.
“Yeah, I wouldn’t recommend that,” the actress told the mag jokingly. “I really love these dogs, but it’s a lot with two little kids.”
Katherine, an avid animal activist, recently launched a line of pet products called Just One, the proceeds of which go towards helping spay and neuter animals in order to keep Los Angeles’s overpopulation problem at bay and prevent any shelter pets from being unnecessarily euthanized.
Thankfully, the Knocked Up star’s kids, 4-year-old Naleigh and newborn Adalaide, don’t seem to mind sharing Katherine’s attention with the brood of pooches.
"Naleigh, from the moment she came to us, was surrounded by dogs," Katherine said. "Especially when she was really little, 1-1½, they were her best friends. She would hang out with the dogs and dress them up in her little party clothes and put necklaces on them and play tea party with them. I love it so much that she will always have this source of comfort in her life if she's an animal person."
