The pH test

So I tried some investigative work - is it possible to pH test  puddles in the litter box ? I thought it would be, but nope. It was easy to get Sampo's sample as he pees far too freely outside the box. 
I then tested the clumping litter I use, with a little water. I was surprised it was so alkaline, and at this point realised that as soon as mildly acidic urine hits it, it will not give an accurate reading.
And Mirsku's sample was indeed pretty acidic. I'm keeping an eye on him. 
Now, I did also wonder about a little 'hula skirt' to go at the base of a tail, and constructed one. 
Sampo was very unimpressed by it.
He did lick it before it was removed, thus confirming cat saliva is alkaline.Sadly it did not last long enough to be exposed to pee.
 It did make a very decorative Bottom of Disrespect though.
So in conclusion, I've not found a way of testing out the pH of litter box puddles. But I'll keep thinking......
