Best Cat food

My cats have a lot of sensitivity issues and often vomit up most dry cat food. Fisrt dry cat food i have never had to clean up off the floor in a mess. Very happy with that plus this has organ meats which is really important. Most dry cat food i see on the market seems like its actually made for humans to eat not cats. Humans eat fancy butcher cut meats and colorful shapes. Cats dont care what it looks like. The organ meats are not waste and pretty important for cat health but not in most cat food. This stuff is great and my cats didn't hesitate to eat it. There was no trying to mix it in the old food to get them used to it. They ate it right away the day it arrived. They wont touch the old food now. Now if only they made wet food.

CAT DOESNT' LIKE

Sorry, but our cat doesn't like the taste of this food. It has great ingredients (hence the one star rating) but our cat only eats it because he has no choice. The pieces are also way too small - it's hard for our cat to just grab one piece at a time, which he likes to do.

Fantastic Food

I have been feeding this brand to my cat for years. She originally was eating the chicken version, but since she is now becoming older (11 years old), I decided to switch to this new one. I give her about 1/4 a cup a day paired with a soft food diet and she is doing fantastic. Her fur is super silky and she is still lively as can be. My vet has even been taken aback by how old she is, but how young she looks and acts haha. I would definitely suggest this food as a supplement to your cat's regular diet. It's worth it. The preservatives in this food are all bacteria that your cat needs in their gut and all the ingredients are super healthy for kitties!

He loves it!

Our formerly semi-feral finicky cat, who knows exactly how the real thing tastes when it comes to eating, has decided that this is his favorite food. There are less expensive brands, but Orijen has made his top shelf selection.

Orijen Guardian 8 Dry Adult Cat Food

I switched my 15-year old cat to this food at the suggestion of my son who also feeds this to his cat. My cat had been losing weight and was no longer playful. Since he's been eating this food, he gained a pound and he's returned to the playful ways of his youth. He also LOVES this food which is a real win for all of us.

They like this one best

I bought 2 bags of Orijen dry food, this flavor and the Tundra. This one they really like right from the start. I will keep this one around.

Cats love it

My 3 cats seem to eat up this brand with no problem. One cat is a bit more sensitive and throws up if she eats too much in the morning, so we split her portion up but I don’t believe it’s the food itself but her belly preference. She is a princess, after all, and thus has to be treated as such.

My Cats LOVE this food!

I have 3 of my own cats and a foster. I bought this food for the ingredient profile and protein content. All the cats absolutely love it and I feel good knowing they’re getting the best nutrition to stay healthy.

Very healthy

My Stormy loved this food. This is a new kind that I tried as he likes fish flavor. More chicken with some fish which he still likes. I typically buy him 6 fish. But he still loves it. Lots of protein

Excellent quality

The quality is excellent, pricey but excellent. I rotate this with another dry. With 11 cats I tend to provide 3 different dry foods and soft food.
