Grain Free Cat & Kitten
BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE | FOR CATS
FRESH FREE-RUN CHICKEN & TURKEY, CAGE-FREE EGGS, AND WILD-CAUGHT FISH
TO PROMOTE PEAK BODY CONDITIONING, CATS NEED A DIET RICH IN MEAT PROTEIN.
ORIJEN Fit & Trim is nutrient-dense with 42% richly nourishing protein, 85% quality animal ingredients, and a unique blend of fibres to nourish cats according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
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 the meat ingredients are prepared at 90°C from fresh free-run chicken and turkey, and wild-caught fish to create a concentrated source of rich protein that cannot be supplied by fresh meat alone.
Evolutionary 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 flavour and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for selective eaters.
IS YOUR CAT'S FOOD BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE?
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 meat and meat diversity. Biologically Appropriate cat foods mirror the natural diet and answer three meat questions:
3 SUPPLEMENTS – ZINC, COPPER, AND CHOLINE
In nature there are no synthetic supplements, so cats derive their complete nutritional needs naturally by consuming whole animals, which contain all of the nutrients they need to thrive. That’s why you won’t find long lists of synthetics in ORIJEN cat foods. Loaded with richly nourishing ratios of fresh meat, organs, and cartilage or bone, plus fresh, whole fish and cage-free eggs, ORIJEN provides a natural source of virtually every nutrient your cat needs to thrive.

OUR BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE PHILOSOPHY/
The Near Eastern wildcat is the ancestor and closest relative of all domestic cats. While years of breeding have produced different kinds of cats, the internal workings of wild and domestic cats remain unchanged, so it’s no surprise that their food requirements remain the same too. Our five Biologically Appropriate principles are simple and mirror the freshness and variety of meat that cats have evolved to eat.
RICH IN MEAT (85%) AND PROTEIN (40%)
All cats are adapted for a diet rich in meat and protein. Their sharp teeth and body mechanics are designed to metabolize protein and fat from meat. ORIJEN is created to nourish your cat or kitten according to her biological needs.
85% quality animal ingredients (2/3 FRESH or RAW; 1/3 gently dehydrated)
40% richly nourishing protein
15% vegetables and fruit
NO grains or gluten
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY OF MEAT
In nature, cats benefit from an assortment of meat. This variety is often lost in conventional cat foods which typically feature a single animal ingredient, such as chicken or lamb, that is highly processed and seldom fresh. That’s why award-winning ORIJEN Cat & Kitten features a rich diversity of meat in Biologically Appropriate WholePrey ratios to nourish your cat or kitten’s peak growth and development:
Fresh free-run chicken from regional farms
Fresh free-run turkey from regional farms
Fresh, whole, wild-caught flounder and herring
WHOLEPREY MEAT RATIOS
WholePrey represents the evolution of ORIJEN foods, incorporating fresh meat, organs, and cartilage or bone in ratios that mirror nature and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic supplements.
Meat – essential for protein and fat as well as vitamins A, B, D, and K, copper, chromium, folic acid, iron, magnesium, potassium, selenium, and zinc.
Organs – packed with virtually every nutrient your cat needs to thrive including vitamins, minerals, healthy fats, and amino acids. Cartilage or Edible Bone – a rich source of minerals including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium in natural form your cat’s body can easily absorb.
