BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE™ FOOD FOR CATS
FREE-RUN CHICKEN AND TURKEY, WILD-CAUGHT FISH AND NEST-LAID EGGS
MODERN CATS AND KITTENS ARE BUILT LIKE THEIR ANCESTORS, POSSESSING A BIOLOGICAL NEED FOR A DIET THAT’S RICH AND VARIED IN ANIMAL PROTEIN.
NOURISH AS NATURE INTENDED
Although they may look different, your cat shares her DNA and eating anatomy with the near eastern wild cat, which means she’s adapted for a diet rich and varied in meat — not high-glycemic carbohydrates and grains.

MEAT AND PROTEIN RICH
Made with 90% premium meat ingredients, ORIJEN features a Biologically Appropriate™ protein level of 40% which closely replicates the natural feline diet.
FREEZE DRY INFUSIONS
Each ORIJEN morsel is infused with freeze-dried meats and liver (prepared in our very own freeze-dry kitchens) and is bursting with the natural savory flavors that all cats love.
NATURAL SOURCE AMINO ACIDS
ORIJEN’s high WholePrey™ ratios of fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich source of amino acids such as Taurine, all of which are derived naturally from meats, eliminating the need for synthetic additives.
NATURAL SOURCE VITAMINS AND MINERALS
ORIJEN’s high WholePrey™ ratios of fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich source of vitamins and minerals, most of which are derived naturally from our whole food ingredients, dramatically reducing the need for synthetic additives.
NATURAL SOURCE GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN
ORIJEN’s high WholePrey™ ratios of fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich and natural source of glucosamine and chondroitin, so no synthetic sources are added or needed.
RICH IN HEALTHY FATS
Animal fats are essential for your cat’s peak health. That’s why ORIJEN Cat & Kitten features naturally occurring, non-rendered fats from fresh poultry, fish and egg ingredients.
DHA AND EPA FROM FRESH FISH
Fresh saltwater fish are a Biologically Appropriate™ source of DHA and EPA, which are essential for your cat’s immune and nervous systems. DHA and EPA are not available from plant sources, such as flax, coconut or sunflower.
LOW CARB, LOW GLYCEMIC
Your cat’s natural diet contains few, if any carbohydrates. That’s why ORIJEN is free of high-glycemic ingredients like potato and tapioca, and contains less than half the carbohydrates of conventional cat foods.
YOUR CAT IS UNIQUE
YOUR CAT OR KITTEN IS UNIQUE AND HER FEEDING REQUIREMENTS WILL VARY WITH HIS ENVIRONMENT, AGE AND ACTIVITY.
That’s why we suggest starting with the guides below, and then monitoring his weight and adjusting portions as needed. Feed twice daily and remember always to keep fresh, clean water available.
By providing more calories from protein and fat (and fewer from carbohydrates), ORIJEN Cat & Kitten distributes calories to mirror the natural feline diet, reducing the risk of obesity and diabetes.
Metabolizable energy is 4060 kcal/kg (463 kcal per 8oz. cup) with 39% from protein, 19% from vegetables and fruits and 42% from fat.
