What is Orijen Cat & Kitten food?


Cats and kittens are built like their ancestors, possessing a biological need for a diet rich and varied in animal protein.

With 40% richly nourishing protein, and a limited 19% low-glycemic carbohydrates, Orijen nourishes cats and kittens according to their evolutionary and biological needs.

Unmatched by any other cat or kitten food, 2/3 of the meats are fresh (refrigerated, without preservatives) or raw (flash-frozen without preservatives), including the top 10 meat ingredients.

1/3 of meat is gently dehydrated at 90°C from fresh chicken, turkey and fish to create a concentrated source of richly nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh meats alone.

Nutrient-dense WholePrey ratios of fresh meats, organs, and cartilage plus fresh whole fish and fresh whole eggs provide a natural source of virtually every nutrient your cat or kitten needs - only zinc, copper and choline are added.

Generous infusions of gently freeze-dried liver enhance flavour and palatability naturally, making Orijen deliciously tasty, even for selective eaters.


Suitable for all breeds and lifestages.


What does Biologically Appropriate mean?

Cats are hunters and, just like their wild cousins, their teeth, jaws and digestive system are all adapted for meat concentrated diets that are rich in fresh meats and meat diversity.

The Biologically Appropriate concept is simple: Mirror the quantity, freshness, and variety of meat that nature evolved cats to eat.


To determine if a cat’s food is biologically appropriate, simply answer three meat questions:

How much meat?

85% meat inclusions.

Orijen leads its class in premium meat inclusions.

All from animals deemed fit for human consumption, prior to inclusion in Orijen foods.


How much fresh meat?

2/3 fresh or raw, 1/3 dehydrated or dried.

2/3 of meats are fresh or raw and loaded with goodness.

1/3 is dried at low temperatures for a premium protein source.


How many meats?

5 different animals in WholePrey ratios.

A variety of meats in WholePrey ratios supply nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need for synthetic supplements.


What does WholePrey mean?

In nature there are no synthetic supplements, so cats derive their complete nutritional needs naturally by consuming whole animals, which contain all the nutrients they need to thrive.

That’s why you won’t find long lists of synthetic supplements in Orijen cat foods. Loaded with richly nourishing ratios of fresh poultry, organs and cartilage plus fresh whole fish and eggs, Orijen provides a natural source of virtually every nutrient your cat or kitten needs to thrive.
