CAT & KITTEN | BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE CAT FOOD
ALL CATS AND KITTENS ARE CARNIVORES, POSSESSING A BIOLOGICAL NEED FOR A HIGH-PROTEIN DIET THAT’S RICH AND VARIED IN MEATS WITH SMALLER AMOUNTS OF FRUITS, VEGETABLES AND GRASSES.
Formulated to match the natural feline diet, ORIJEN CAT & KITTEN is made with high ratios of free-run chicken, turkey and whole eggs, plus wild-caught local fish. These world-class ingredients, all sustainably farmed or fished within our region, arrive FRESH each day — so they’re preservative-free, never frozen, and loaded with the animal proteins and fats that nourish your cat completely.
Bursting with the protein-packed animal ingredients (80%) that Nature evolved all cats to eat, ORIJEN CAT & KITTEN is infused with marine-source DHA & EPA omega-3 fatty acids to support peak skin and coat conditioning — your cat’s outer signs of health and vitality.
In place of the high-glycemic grains found in conventional dry cat foods, ORIJEN’s fruits and greens supply natural antioxidants, while veterinarian selected botanicals satisfy your cat’s instinct to forage for grasses and weeds.
Made with great care and pride in our award-winning factory here in Alberta, Canada, ORIJEN CAT & KITTEN is a delicious way to keep your cat or kitten healthy, happy and strong.
ALTHOUGH THEY MAY LOOK VERY DIFFERENT, YOUR CAT OR KITTEN SHARES HER EATING ANATOMY WITH THE LEOPARD — WHICH MEANS SHE’S EVOLVED AS A CARNIVORE AND ADAPTED FOR A DIET RICH IN MEAT — NOT CARBOHYDRATES AND GRAINS.
Based on this biological fact, and to produce a nutritional analysis that mirrors the diet Mother Nature would provide for your cat or kitten, ORIJEN CAT & KITTEN is loaded with a diversity of nourishing meat proteins and fats, but is limited in carbohydrate.
RICH in MEAT & PROTEIN | 80% / 42%
ORIJEN CAT & KITTEN is made with a full 80% of meat from free-run chicken and turkey, fresh whole eggs and wild-caught fish. These high meat inclusions produce a Biologically Appropriate protein level of 42%, which replicates the natural diet and nourishes your cat or kitten according to her anatomical adaptation to protein from meat.
RICH in ANIMAL FAT | 20%
Animal fats and oils are essential for the peak health of all cats — that’s why ORIJEN is free of plant oils and only features fats of premium animal source. Instead of the highly-processed rendered fats used by conventional cat food makers, over 90% of the fats in ORIJEN occur naturally from high inclusions of fresh meats from chicken, turkey, fish and egg.
DHA & EPA from FRESH FISH | 0.7% / 0.4%
Fresh fish is a perfect source of highly digestible and Biologically Appropriate DHA and EPA Omega-3 fatty acids. Essential for your cat’s immune and nervous systems, as well as a glowing skin and hair coat, these richly nourishing fatty acids are not available from plant oils such as flax, coconut or sunflower.
GRAIN-FREE & CARBOHYDRATE LIMITED | 0% / 20%
Your cat’s natural diet contains very few, if any, grains or carbohydrates. That’s why Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN is grain-free and contains less than half the carbohydrates found in conventional cat foods.
NATURAL SOURCE TAURINE | 0.5%
ORIJEN’s high ratios of fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich source of taurine, which is derived naturally from the fresh meat ingredients — without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.
GLUCOSAMINE & CHONDROITIN | 1400mg / 1000mg
ORIJEN’s high ratios of fresh poultry, meats and fish provide a rich source of glucosamine and chondroitin, which is derived naturally from the fresh meat ingredients — without adding synthetic ingredients to the formula.
VETERINARIAN SELECTED BOTANICALS
Providing the element of your cat’s natural diet that she craves when foraging for grasses and weeds, ORIJEN’s veterinarian-selected botanicals help support your cat’s metabolism, strengthen her organs, and serve as cleansers to rid her body of toxins.
ORIJEN CAT & KITTEN is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for ALL LIFE STAGES.
