In all the examples of additive but nonabelian categories that I am aware of, kernels/cokernels don't exist.

I wonder if there is an additive category where morphisms have kernels and cokernels that fails to be an abelian category. i.e. not every mono/epi is the kernel/cokernel of its cokernel/kernel.
