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:
ORIJEN leads its class in premium fish inclusions.
All from fish from federally inspected facilities prior to inclusion in our foods.
2/3 of fish are FRESH or RAW and loaded with goodness.
1/3 is dried at low temperature for a premium protein source.
A variety of fish in WholePrey ratios supply nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need for synthetic supplements.

3 SUPPLEMENTS – CHOLINE, ZINC, AND COPPER
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 fish, organs and cartilage or bone, ORIJEN provides a natural source of virtually every nutrient your cat needs to thrive.

NOURISH AS NATURE INTENDED

YOUR CAT IS UNIQUE
Your cat or kitten is unique and her feeding requirements will vary with his environment, age, and activity. That’s why we suggest starting with the guides below, and then monitoring his weight and adjusting portions as needed. Feed twice daily and remember always to keep fresh, clean water available.
† Use a standard 8-ounce measuring cup. Serve dry or lightly moistened. See your veterinarian regularly. To help maintain freshness, we recommend sealing the bag tightly and storing it in a cool, dry location. ORIJEN Six Fish Cat is formulated to meet the nutritional levels established by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles for All Life Stages.
By providing more calories from protein and fat (and fewer from carbohydrates), ORIJEN distributes calories to mirror the natural feline diet. Calorie content (calculated): ME 4060 kcal/kg, 463 kcal per 8oz. cup. Calories distributed to support peak conditioning with 39% from protein, 17% from vegetables and fruit, and 44% from fat.
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 and fish that cats have evolved to eat.
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 fish and meat. ORIJEN is created to nourish your cat or kitten according to her biological needs.
- 90% fish (2/3 fresh or raw; 1/3 gently dehydrated)
- 40% richly nourishing fish protein
- Our dried fish is prepared at 200°F from fresh, whole fish to create a concentrated source of protein (not the industry standard of bones and trimmings)
- NO gluten or grains
Fresh meat is the foundation of award-winning ORIJEN foods.
- 2/3 of the fish are fresh or raw, supplying your cat with essential nutrients in their most natural and nourishing form
- 1/3 of fish are dried and prepared at low temperatures from fresh fish to create a concentrated source of nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh fish alone
In nature, cats benefit from an assortment of meat and fish. 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 Six Fish features a rich diversity of fresh fish in Biologically Appropriate WholePrey ratios to nourish your cat’s peak health:
- Fresh, whole mackerel from New England’s Atlantic waters
- Fresh, whole herring from New England’s Atlantic waters
- Fresh, whole flounder from New England’s Atlantic waters
- Fresh, whole redfish from New England’s Atlantic waters
- Fresh, whole monkfish from New England’s Atlantic waters
- Fresh, whole silver hake from New England’s Atlantic waters
Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole animals to perfectly meet your cat’s needs. ORIJEN WholePrey ratios of fish, organs, and cartilage or bone mirror nature, and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic ingredients, so only choline, zinc and copper are added. The WholePrey diet is a nutritional treasure:
- Fish – 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 fat, and amino acids.
- Cartilage or Edible Bone – a rich source of minerals including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium in a natural form that your cat’s body can easily absorb.
While cats are obligate carnivores and have no biological requirement for carbohydrates, some cat foods still contain large amounts of potato and tapioca. Biologically Appropriate ORIJEN Six Fish is a protein-rich food featuring only fresh vegetables and fruit which release sugar slowly, dramatically reducing the potential for fat storage.
