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 5 Biologically Appropriate principles are simple and mirror the freshness and variety of whole animal ingredients that cats have evolved to eat. With 90% quality animal ingredients, and 40% richly nourishing protein, ORIJEN Tundra nourishes cats and kittens according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
Why We Love It
- A full 2/3 of our animal ingredients are FRESH (refrigerated, with only natural preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, with only natural preservatives), including the top 10 ingredients.
- WholePrey ratios of fresh, quality animal ingredients from meat, organs, and cartilage or bone deliver the nutrients your cat requires, naturally.
- Gently freeze-dried infusions of liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for selective eaters.
ORIJEN's goal is simple; provide the best possible food for your pet, period. Dogs and cats evolved as hunters - the structure of their teeth, jaws, and digestive system scientifically classifies them as carnivores, evolved to eat a meat based diet. Through a biologically appropriate diet packed with fresh meats, ORIJEN captures the carnivore in your pet and releases their inner instinct in each grain-free recipe. With 85-90% meat ingredients, ORIJEN has 3 times the meat of most conventional dog and cat foods. Two thirds of the meats in every formula are raw or fresh, and never rendered or processed, so they are brimming with proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals. The high quality fresh meats and low-glycemic healthy carbohydrates are all sustainably sourced in the USA and made in Kentucky from trusted farmers. With heritage red meats from America's heartland, wild caught fish from New England, free run poultry and eggs, locally grown fruits, vegetables and botanicals such as butternut squash and Bartlett Pears, trusted sustainable American farmers are at the core of ORIJEN's business. The unmatched variety of high quality ingredients rival mother nature, supplying nutrients in their freshest, most natural flavorful form, mimicking the ancestral diet and keeping your pet's inner instinct happy and healthy.
