This year has seen no shortage of shocking incidents of cruelty toward cats. And many of the cases remain unsolved as 2013 draws to a close.

Here’s a recap of a few of the still-open cases:

CALIFORNIA: An animal control employee in Los Angeles County discovered a gray male adult bound in red duct tape when he arrived for work in April. The tape covered the cat's mouth and nose and bound his legs together. The feline was gasping for air but survived.

KANSAS: A male cat was found in Great Bend in October with his head and front leg cut off.

MARYLAND: An orange-and-white female adult in Anne Arundel County was wounded in June when a two-foot arrow entered her left shoulder.

NORTH CAROLINA: A brown tabby kitten died in September after being thrown from a car and landing on hard ground at a busy intersection in downtown Charlotte.

UTAH: Four kittens and their mother cat were thrown from a moving car on I-15 north of Salt Lake City in October. Two of the kittens and the mom cat were killed.

WASHINGTON, D.C.: Animal control officers found the body of a deceased gray/black tabby female cat with a crushed head in southeast D.C. in early October. Nearby, they also discovered a brown/black "tiger striped" female cat with severe blunt trauma to her face and jaw; she was later euthanized.
