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

" We have no words," humane officials wrote on their Facebook page. "We need all your good thoughts and vibes for her. We aren't sure if she will make it, it depends on the extent of the damage."

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.

Officials say the cat lived in the PineBridge apartment complex on E. Cook Rd.
