Cats and kittens possess a biological need for animal protein. Descended from the Near Eastern wildcat, they have evolved to require a diet that is rich in animal ingredients, in order to maintain peak health. ORIJEN Cat & Kitten contains richly nourishing protein from free-run chicken and turkey, wild-caught fish, and cage-free eggs. Two-thirds of our animal ingredients are FRESH or RAW, for a concentrated source of protein. Mimicking the diet your cat’s ancestors would have hunted and eaten in the wild, we use the whole prey animal, including meat, organs, cartilage, and bone, so your cat is getting everything they need in order to stay happy, healthy, and strong.
