Example 7.6.6. Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a category. There is a canonical way to turn this into a site where $\{ f : V \to U \mid f\text{ is an isomorphism}\} $ are the coverings of $U$. Sheaves on this site are the presheaves on $\mathcal{C}$. This corresponding topology is called the chaotic or indiscrete topology.

I think one needs to choose all sets of isomorphisms as coverings, right?

OMG, thanks very much! This is yet another mistake I made early on with the material on sites. The change is here.
