Abstract: The category of sheaves on the topological space X with values in the algebraic category $ \mathcal{A}$ is shown to be cotripleable under the stalk category $ {\mathcal{A}^{\vert X\vert}}$. If K is a field then the category of K-coalgebras is shown to be cotripleable under the category of K-vector spaces. This makes possible the interpretation of the first group of the associated triple cohomology complex. In particular, for coalgebras our $ {H^1}$ is isomorphic to Jonah's $ {H^2}$.
