1. How does Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” work?


Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” It is designed to indicate a color change if your cat’s urine has a higher than average/normal pH (or alkalinity). Your kitty’s litter will turn various shades of pink, depending on how high your cat’s urine pH is. The closer the urinary pH is to the normal range, the lighter the pink. The further the alkalinity is from the normal range, the darker the pink color. Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” is the best cat litter for use every day to ensure the health of your cat!

9. If my cat has an above average urinary pH, how can the Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” help monitor his/her health?


It is best to understand the baseline pH for your cat by having your veterinarian perform an exam to determine your cat’s urinary pH. Using Perfect Litter Alert, monitor your cat’s litter to see which shade of pink is normal for your cat. Watch for any darkening of the color pink, which is an indicator that your cat’s pH has increased.

10. My cat urinated in the Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” and it turned dark pink, but my vet said my cat has a normal pH and isn’t sick.


It may be possible that your cat had a spike in his/her urinary pH and it has since returned to normal. Spikes can be caused by your cat eating too rapidly or by ingesting certain substances.

11. My cat has urinary crystals, but doesn’t exhibit any symptoms of
UTI or FLUTD.


Some cats, primarily females, develop crystals in their urinary tract, but pass them and do not become sick. Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” is designed to notify you when your cat’s urinary pH is high. This high pH creates a climate conducive to crystal formation and possible blockage of the cat’s urethra. This can cause serious illness and even death in many cats, so make sure to have your cat examined by your veterinarian ASAP.

12. My cat used Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” and it did not turn pink, but it turns out that my cat was sick.


Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” is designed as Early Warning Indicator for possible FLUTD or UTIs in your cat. It is not a diagnostic product but rather an indicator for one of the key warning signs of possible urinary tract disorders: high urinary pH.
• Your cat possibly has a lower than normal urinary pH. Make sure to get your cat’s baseline urinary pH (see FAQ #9).
• Your cat may have a tendency to develop crystals and or infection at a very low urinary pH.
• It is possible that your cat has a problem caused by too much acid in his/her system and has formed calcium oxalate crystals. Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” looks for high urinary pH only (the most common type), not low pH which is high acidity. However, if your cat develops an infection from the calcium oxalate crystals and subsequently has an increase in pH or alkalinity from the infection, the litter would turn pink.
Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” is formulated to react to above average normal range of urinary pH in cats, which is one of the first signs that your cat might have FLUTD or UTI. Some cats will fall out of that range.

13. My cat has problems with calcium oxalate crystals - will Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” help monitor these?


Calcium oxalate is rare in cats, but does occur. Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” turns pink only when your cat has high urinary pH only. However, if your cat develops an infection from the calcium oxalate crystals and subsequently has an increase in urinary pH from the infection, Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” would turn pink.

14. What are signs/symptoms of UTIs or FLUTD in cats?


Look for the following signs and if your cat has any of these, take him/her to the vet immediately, even if the Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” has not changed color:
• Difficulty and pain when urinating
• Crying out while urinating
• More frequent trips to the litter box
• Spending more time in the litter box
• Blood in the urine
• Affected cats tend to excessively lick their genital area
• Urinating outside the litter box (cats often prefer cool, smooth surfaces like a tile floor or even a bathtub)

17. Do I throw out the entire litter box when the Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” turns pink?


No need to waste cat litter! Just clean out the clumps and solid waste daily from your cat’s litter box.

Return to Top

18. Is it okay to keep my cat’s litter box in the bathroom?


Yes! Some moisture in the air does not affect Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” or make it change color. However, if water splashes in to the litter box, it will most likely make the litter turn pink. Tap water generally has a pH higher than that of cat urine.

19. Can I mix Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” with other cat litter?


Yes! You can mix Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert” with your cat’s old litter to get him/her used to it at first. However, the indicator in the litter may not read properly causing incorrect pH readings when your cat urinates in the box. We recommend that after your cat has become used to the litter after a few days, to thoroughly wash the litter box and re-fill it with Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert”.

20. How often should I clean my cat’s litter box?


We recommend you scoop clean your kitty’s litter box every day to remove soiled areas, and completely empty and clean the litter box about once a month. If you have multiple cats using the same litter box, we recommend cleaning it about every 2 weeks or more often. Clean kitty’s litter box using a gentle non-ammonia detergent, rinse and thoroughly dry it before refilling with fresh Pet Ecology Perfect Litter “Alert”. Remember cats are like people: no one likes to use a dirty toilet!

“I have been using Perfect Litter for over a year now and my cat is very happy with it. It clumps exceptionally well, and the only downside is that the the small white components tend to stick to the cat's paws on exiting the litter box, however this is nothing compared to the dusty mess made from the previous litter used prior to Perfect Litter.”
