Healthy Cats are Happy Cats

Staying on top of your cat’s health is always a priority, and Tidy Care™ makes it even easier to monitor the health of your cat and get them the care they need. With colour changing crystals, Tidy Care™ Alert is the tool you need to provide the care they deserve.

How Tidy Care™ Alert Works

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.

cat in litter box

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

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

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

Daily Maintenance

Since there are urine clumps to scoop, just remove solids and stir the litter daily to ensure optimal absorbency and odour control.

Tidy Care Alert Colour Guide

Normal icon

Yellow to Olive Green

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

Acidic icon

Deep Yellow/Orange

Acidic urine is represented by colours 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 colour is shown in your cat’s litter, we recommend contacting your veterinarian immediately.
