How to Use Tidy Care Alert

Monitoring your cat’s health has never been easier! Just follow these simple steps:

2-3 inches and litter box with litter in it

Start with a clean box. Fill with 2 to 3 inches of Alert.

Within 2 hours of use, make note of the color of the litter granules. Repeat this step for 5 days and note the most common healthy color seen. This is your baseline.

Monitor the granules’ color as needed, but keep in mind that the color can change throughout the day, particularly 1-2 hours after a cat eats.

Note: Colors outside of yellow to olive green are not considered viable baseline colors. If the litter color remains outside of a healthy range for longer than 2 days, schedule a trip to your veterinarian for a checkup.

Tidy Care Alert Color Guide

Normal icon

Yellow to Olive Green

Normal or baseline shades range from yellow to olive green, and these are the most typical colors to see from Tidy Care Alert litter. (Within 1 to 2 hours after eating, the color may appear more blue/dark green but should return to your cat’s baseline color after.)

Acidic icon

Deep Yellow/Orange

Acidic urine is represented by colors ranging from a deep yellow to orange. Acidic urine may be associated with potential metabolic acidosis or kidney tubular acidosis.

Alkaline icon

Blue/Dark Green

Alkaline urine is shown with granules ranging from blue to dark green. This type of urine may be associated with a potential urinary tract infection or elevated risk of struvite stone formation.

Blood icon


Red granules indicate the presence of blood, which could mean serious health concerns for your cat. If this color is shown in your cat’s litter, we recommend contacting your veterinarian immediately.
