This is the only authorized facsimile edition of a scarce pamphlet written and distributed by master jazzman Charles Mingus in 1972. The CAT-alog features Nightlife the cat and outlines Mingus's unique toilet-training program for felines.

“Mingus was as broad and inventive a thinker as he was a musical genius. Here's hoping this pamphlet leads to his timeless music as well as a cleaner, litter-free home.” —Ashley Kahn, jazz author & fan of cats

One of the most important figures in twentieth century American music, Charles Mingus was a virtuoso bass player, accomplished pianist, bandleader and composer.
