I had a very hard time finding a healthy cat food that my finicky cat would eat. I discovered Orijen from a website called "all about cats" who suggested Orijen, if you have a finicky cat. So after researching it, I was thrilled to find that the ingredients are the most excellent you can find. I have studied a lot about cat food ingredients. Orijen is made in the USA, and it has multiple meat sources, and most all of the nutrition that a cat requires are in the food naturally because of the great ingredients. There are no dangerous ingredients like "dicalcium phosphate" which can cause urinary tract stones, which is in many cat foods. After being gently cooked, the food is sprayed with probiotics. And it has a strong aroma that cats cannot resist. It smells quite good! And my cat is crazy about Orijen! But I was feeding her the original Orijen and she was gaining too much weight. She weighs 14.6 pounds, but she has a small frame and should only weigh 12 pounds at the most, and I was only giving her a scant 1/2 cup in 24 hours. So I reduced it to 1/3 cup in 24 hours. But she kept begging me for more food. So I looked to see if there were options on Chewy. And I was thrilled to find fit and trim. I emailed the makers of Orijen which is Champion Pet Foods, and ask them the calorie count. There is 515 cal per cup of the Orijen original, and there is 444 cal per cup of the Orijen fit and trim. They also told me that there is more fiber in Fit and Trim, which will help make her feel more full. When it arrived, she could hardly wait for me to open the bag. And then she devoured the sample that I gave to her. I am more than happy. It is very rich food, so I will continue to watch her weight, but I am hoping maybe I can give her 1/2 cup instead of reducing it to 1/3 cup. it agreed with her delicate digestive system just fine, no reflux or vomiting. This is the best cat food there is! Much better than what the vet tries to sell you for sure.
I’ve bought 3 bags of this food because one of my cats needs to drop a few pounds. Unfortunately it seemed that each bag was a different formula. I am not sure if they are still working on getting it straight but it’s hard to get my cats used to it when the formula changes.
Really nice quality ingredients, first time trying Orijen and I was shocked to read the first 14 ingredients are 100% meat/animal based protein’s ! No by-products or meals, just the good stuff. My cats go crazy for it. I just wish the maintenance of the chickens and turkeys were free range and able to roam instead of stuck in a barn so it’s more ethical sourcing but good kibbles nonetheless. Happy, healthy cats.
I wish that our cats took to this so they could have a better life. They will only eat this catfood if it's the only thing in their bowls and they are starving. ;-(
Orijen Cat food is high in magnesium, phosphorus, protein and calcium which is causing urinary problems.
My cat used to love this for years before they changed the bag. I don't know if it's the food or him, but now he throws up after eating it which is something that never happened before. I even tried another bag to make sure it wasn't just a bad batch or something. Nope. Something changed and he won't even look at it anymore.
I transitioned my two indoor cats to the Fit & Trim from Original and they seem to be perfectly happy with the change.
I switched my fat cat to this food in hopes it will help her lose weight. She’s only been on it for a few months so no noticeable difference yet. She absolutely loves this food and my only complaint is the really strong odor. I feel like it makes my whole house smell like it. Would not recommend to anyone with a sensitive nose lol
I love the quality of Orijen foods and this is no exception, but half of the 4 fat cats won’t touch it (maybe that’s how they lose weight? Lol) so I mix it with the Guardian 8 formula (also Orijen) for them, which they love, and only give them measured out feedings of the dry food now instead of free feeding (oh the horror!). My daughter’s 2 cats, 1 of which is a picky eater (the other one is basically a trash truck), both like it fine and eat it. They are also given measured out crunchies for the day. We give all the cats in the house a half portion of Sheba wet food per day as well (per the vet for the moisture, and we have Kitty water fountains- plural) and mix some powder probiotics and joint supplements into that. All the cats have slowly been losing a little weight.
I was looking forward to try this cat food based on the good reviews. However, my cats thought different. The FIV+ cat threw it up, either by itself or mixed with their usual kibble. The others tried and snubbed it. The two feral cats are it only mixed with their kibble, and then stopped eating it altogether. So off to the possum and raccoon it went. I am lucky to have them because I make a lot of food mistakes.
