Ellen: Kate Walsh Life After Private Practice
For the last seven years, Kate Walsh played a successful, full-time doctor on Private Practice and Grey’s Anatomy. Now that Private Practice ended its run, she’s taking time off.
Walsh said she is practicing at being a “lady of leisure ” She will pack a lunch, take long car drives and get pedicures in Marina Del Ray. She does have moments where she freaks out and worries that she won’t work again, but she’s consciously taking time to relax. She enjoys sleeping in, relaxing and hanging out with her pets.

She isn’t just hanging out with her pets, she’s talking to them now. Pablo is Walsh’s big orange cat and she’s taken to having long discussions with him. She used to get up at 5 a.m. for work, so now Pablo gets up from 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. and howls. She’s tried to talk to him because she thinks he “understands English but chooses not to speak it.”
