A-Kerr's Bengal Cats

A-Kerr's Bengals is a well established name in the Bengal and cat world.  Libbie Kerr founded the cattery in 1989 with her husband, John, in Delaware, Ohio.  Her two sons, Jay and Theo were an essential part of socializing, and caring for the cats with their parents. Although Libbie is now retired from the everyday functioning of the cattery and enjoys her pet Bengals, Mira and Rose.  Samantha Kerr, her daughter-in-law, who met Jay in 2004 through working with Libbie, is now the driving force of the future as the owner/operator of the cats and cattery. Today, our two small children, Chase and Viv are now the kitten tamers and helpers of the next generation of A-Kerr’s Bengals. Our home and cattery is now located in Cardington, Ohio, about 45 minutes to an hour north of Columbus, Ohio. A-Kerr's produces mainly brown spotted Bengal cats and kittens, but occasionally we plan to have charcoals and snows such as the seal lynx, or seal mink. Hopefully, the future will bring more of what our clients know and love and lots of colorful kittens!  Cats and kittens are usually available year round, but please contact us to see what kittens are available or to get in line for our coming litters.   We register and exhibit cats with TICA and CFA... look for us at shows around Ohio and the Great Lakes region or follow us on Instagram and Facebook for daily to weekly updates!

The Bengal CATTERY! Located just north of  Columbus, Ohio ... About 1.5 hours from Cleveland, 1.5 hours from Dayton, and two hours from Dayton, A-Kerr's is in the heart of Ohio. Jay and Samantha Kerr have created an ideal facility for the adult Bengal cats to live. A-Kerr's transitioned from Libbie's cattery space in Powell, Ohio to Sami's home in Cardington in 2013. Pictured above is cattery building construction in the initial stages. It has taken lots of hard work and planning!    This is an ongoing project as we strive to constantly improve living and enrichment for our Bengals. All cats have access to the outside 'catio' as well as heated / cooled inside living space. Our Bengals enjoy views of wildlife, our family and dogs, our chickens, and their fish pond!
