About ORIJEN Dry Cat Food

The Pinnacle of Nutrition

Cats are obligate carnivores, and they thrive on a biologically appropriate diet. ORIJEN provides optimal feline nutrition by using unsurpassed quantities of fresh or raw meat from a variety of Wholeprey animal protein sources.

85-90% Animal Ingredients

With 85-90% premium animal ingredients, each ORIJEN cat food recipe provides essential protein, vitamins and minerals in their most nourishing forms. It’s a meaty diet designed to feed your cat’s carnivorous cravings.

Nourish As Nature Intended

Fresh ingredients preserved solely through refrigeration and raw ingredients frozen at the peak of freshness stay true to their natural form. This minimalist approach preserves important nutrients and keeps closer to the diet your feline evolved to eat.


With at least 15 fresh or raw ingredients in every recipe, ORIJEN kibble is the closest thing to feeding a raw diet.


ORIJEN recipes include meat, organs, and bone, so your cat can enjoy the most nutrient-dense and succulent parts of the prey.


The first 5 ingredients are always fresh or raw animal sources, including nutrient-rich meat, poultry, whole fish, and organs.

Transitioning to ORIJEN

Acclimate your cat to a new ORIJEN diet by transitioning gradually from the old food you were feeding. Start by replacing 25% of the old diet with ORIJEN food, increasing the new food amount proportionally over the next 10-14 days. By the end of the second week, you should be feeding 100% ORIJEN.


ORIJEN makes foods to help pets thrive, so they can stay healthy and strong through all their days. Their Wholeprey approach means including the most nutrient-dense and delicious parts of the prey in their recipes, to deliver the complete nutrition cats and dogs evolved to eat. Help your best friend reach his fullest potential with a biologically appropriate diet from ORIJEN.

Questions & Answers

10 Customer Questions

I'm concerned about the non-fish ingredients. Don't Pinto beans garbanzo beans, lentils, etc cause digestive upset? It seems painful!
Answer by ChewyFeb 15, 2021
Orijen fruit and vegetable inclusions provide natural sources of fiber, vitamins, and minerals, while also providing the binding action needed to form a kibble. Their legume inclusions are a healthy source of fiber and soluble carbohydrates. They are not harmful to your cat. If unsure, we recommend consulting with your veterinarian.

Is this safe for a newly weaned 8 week old kitten?
Answer by ChewyJan 07, 2021
This recipe can be fed to fully weaned kittens as young as 5 weeks old.

Is the bag resealable?
Answer by ChewyOct 03, 2021
The ORIJEN Cat food will have the reseal functions on bag sizes up to 4 pounds. The larger bags, 12 pounds do not have this feature.

What size are the kibble pieces and how hard are they?
Answer by ChewyDec 16, 2021
Orijen's kibble size is between ¼ to ½ inch in diameter. This recipe is a crunchy kibble.

Ok for the first couple of days

Honestly, all cats are picky, so reviews on cat food are very subjective. I chose this (six fish) based on all the great reviews, hoping to find the holy grail of cat food. I only gave it 3 stars bc 1) he seriously didn't like it 2) the fish smell is overwhelming & 3) it's a bit pricey. Still, with all the great reviews, decided try 2 other flavors Guardian 8 & the Original. He appears to like (not love) the Original more than the Guardian 8. This turned into $90 taste test. I've decided to stick with the Original

Crazy Cat Carer

The very high & pure quality of this product does deserve 5 stars! However, Caution is called for due to certain essential items that cats need for optimum health are missing such as Taurine!

Popular with kitty

Decided to try a higher quality food. Kitty went for the six fish in a big way . I mixed a little in with her old food as recommended on the bag. She took one sniff and ran to her bowl. This never happens. Were happy kitty loves it.

Mostly loved

My cats mostly love these. Every once in a while they decide to boycott it but go back to loving it next time. I don’t think it’s quite as healthy as it claims because it is a kibble but all in all happy with it

Allergic cat loves it

My cat is allergic to beef and chicken. Even if a cat food states that it is a particular type of food (i.e. Chicken, fish, etc.) they frequently contain other animal protein as well. This is ONLY fish - 6 varieties - is nutritionally correct and my cat loves it!

His favorite food

Our semi-feral cat, now a full-time indoor resident, absolutely loves Orijen food. He's also smitten with their other flavors. These and Orijen freeze-dried treats are his staples and he's not complaining.

Cats like it but their digestive system does not

This food itself smells and looks fine, and all of my 3 cats seem to like the food, even the picky eater. But ever since starting on Orijen Six Fish dry food all 3 of my cats developed extremely foul smelling poop (which I have never experienced before). I was hoping after the adjustment period their tummies would settle but no improvement. They poop huge ”logs” and the smell is putred. (Sorry for the graphic description.) Maybe it’s the all fish ingredient combinatuon which is causing it? I will try another Orijen dry with fish/meat combo to see if my kitties tummies will handle it better.

Cats were disinterested and STINKY

I had high hopes for this because the ingredient list is so good but unfortunately my cats just werent interested. They’re normally little kibble goblins that will stop at nothing for breakfast and dinner but they were very blasé about this and grazed instead. I also noticed their poopies were WAYYY stinkier than usual. Sometimes my babies dont cover their poop and with this food I could smell it everywhere in my 800 sqft apartment. It was awful to say the least haha. I switched them to N&D fish kibble and I have my little goblins back. Its been a couple days and every meal they are meowing and running to their bowls so excited! I’ve been giving them kibble in place of their treats (as I ran out of their greenies) and they dont mind one bit they are so excited to eat it!!

Pieces are large and no one will eat it

I cannot complain about the quality of this very expensive cat food, but my cats only like little pieces and these pieces are about three times the size of the pieces they are used to eating. I feed both 4 indoor and 4 feral cats and none of them were interested in this. They sniffed the food and walked away.
