MANSFIELD- A cat, seriously injured, after Richland County Humane officials say someone set off a firecracker inside her.

A veterinarian told Fox 8 Tuesday the cat had surgery Monday and is doing better. The veterinarian said it will be several days before they will be able to determine the extent of her injuries.
