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.

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 85%³ quality animal ingredients and a freeze-dried liver coating, this diet is beyond comparison.

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.
Your cat is unique and her feeding requirements will vary with her environment, age and activity. That’s why we suggest starting with this guide and then monitoring her weight and adjusting portions as needed. Feed twice daily and remember always to keep fresh, clean water available.
