Kathleen O'Brien is the girl in Dogsbody who rescues Sirius and adopts him as a pet. She is the niece of Mr Duffield and Duffie with whom she lives because her Irish father is in prison for being involved with some of the violence of the IRA. Her mother has apparently run away to America.

Kathleen is very sweet and loves animals. Duffie takes a great deal of advantage of her, making her do all the cooking and house-cleaning (in addition to going to school) in exchange for keeping Sirius as a birthday present. Kathleen doesn't always do a very good job of the housework because she is not much older than her cousin Robin.
