Review: Orijen Cat Food

Back at the beginning of January, I wrote a post about Mr. Chewy, an online store for pet supplies. The nice people at Mr. Chewy thought that it was good to get to read about my furry babies, Jenny and Gracie, and they wanted to give them another chance to be featured on the blog, so they offered to let me do a review of another product from the website, Orijen pet food. A few weeks ago a bag of Orijen Cat and Kitten Dry Cat Food showed up at my door, and the cats happily started trying it out.  Here's a bit about this cat food, from the Mr. Chewy website:

 Our focus is simple. We use fresh regional ingredients to produce biologically appropriate foods that promote peak health in dogs and cats, and peace of mind to the people who love them. Different from conventional pet food makers, our Biologically Appropriate focus means our foods are formulated to nourish dogs and cats in keeping with their evolutionary and anatomical adaptation to protein-rich diets that include a broad variety of fresh meats.
Orijen pet food is seriously fancy stuff- I think the ingredients are better than those in some of the foods we eat!  The cat and kitten food that we received is made from 80% premium animal ingredients and 20% fruit, vegetables and botanicals, with no grain. The animal ingredients are a variety of never-frozen regional ingredients including free-run chicken & turkey, wild-caught fish and whole eggs.  Not surprisingly, my cats really are enjoying this food.  I transitioned them gradually to it, off their old food, and they haven't had any problems since they started eating it.  My only problem with it is keeping their bowls full!

Orijen pet food comes in two varieties for cats and six varieties for dogs. Visit the Mr. Chewy website to check them all out!

Disclosure: I received this pet food to review for myself (or rather for my cats to review). I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and mine alone.
