All felines, even those that cuddle up in your homes with the rest of your family, need a diet that is rich in animal proteins to stay in the best health. Orijen Cat & Kitten food is made with a recipe thatâ€™s designed to nourish good health. To ensure a concentrated source of protein, 2/3rd of their animal ingredients is either Fresh or Raw.Â
In the wild, cats are deadly hunters and they thrive on a whole-prey diet that includes meat, organs, bone and cartilage. This is exactly why Orijenâ€™s recipe also includes these for varied nutrition. The meat included is from poultry like turkey and chicken (free-run), nest-laid eggs and wild-caught fish.
