Help your cat thrive with the power of protein-rich recipes that provide peak nourishment. As obligate carnivores, modern cats are built like their ancestors and thrive on a Biologically Appropriate diet rich in protein and fat sourced from a variety of animal ingredients. ORIJEN® Original Cat diet is made with fresh or raw¹ free-run² chicken and turkey, wild-caught fish and cage-free eggs. Packed with WholePrey animal ingredients like organs and bone, ORIJEN food is made with the most nutrient-dense, succulent parts of the prey to deliver the nutrition cats need. With 90%³ quality animal ingredients and a freeze-dried liver coating, this diet is beyond comparison.
- With 40% richly nourishing protein, Orijen nourishes cats and kittens according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
- Free of rendered poultry meals, 1/3 of the meat ingredients are from dehydrated chicken and turkey (air-dried at low temperatures from fresh meat) for a concentrated source of protein.
- 2/3 of the meat ingredients are FRESH (refrigerated, without preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, without preservatives), including the top 10 ingredients.
- Nutrient-dense WholePrey ratios of fresh meat, organs, and cartilage or bone, plus fresh, whole fish, and cage-free eggs provide a natural source of virtually every nutrient your cat needs.
- Infusions of gently freeze-dried liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, giving Orijen a taste that cats crave.
¹Orijen's fresh ingredients use refrigeration as the sole method of preservation. Their raw ingredients are the same as their fresh, but are frozen at the peak of freshness to preserve nutrients.
