BIOLOGICALLY APPROPRIATE | FOR ALL LIFE STAGES
BOER GOAT, WILD BOAR, VENISON, ARCTIC CHAR, FREE-RUN DUCK & MUTTON
JUST LIKE THEIR WILD ANCESTORS, CATS REQUIRE A DIET RICH IN ANIMAL PROTEIN, WITH SMALLER AMOUNTS OF VEGETABLES AND FRUIT.
With 90% quality animal ingredients, and 40% richly nourishing protein, ORIJEN Tundra nourishes cats and kittens according to their evolutionary and biological needs.
A full 2/3 of our animal ingredients are FRESH (refrigerated, with only natural preservatives) or RAW (flash-frozen, with only natural preservatives), including the top 10 ingredients.
WholePrey ratios of fresh, quality animal ingredients from meat, organs, and cartilage or bone deliver the nutrients your cat requires, naturally.
Gently freeze-dried infusions of liver enhance flavor and palatability naturally, making ORIJEN deliciously tasty, even for selective eaters.
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 protein-concentrated diets that are rich and diverse in fresh, quality animal ingredients. Biologically Appropriate cat foods mirror the natural diet and answer 3 meat questions:
ORIJEN leads its class in premium meat inclusions.
All from animals from federally inspected facilities prior to inclusion in our foods.
2/3 of meats are FRESH or RAW and loaded with goodness.
1/3 is dried at low temperature for a premium protein source.
A variety of meats in WholePrey ratios supply nutrients naturally, dramatically reducing the need for synthetic supplements.
Wild Pacific pilchard
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, whole animal ingredients from meat, 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 shares her eating anatomy with the Near Eastern wildcat, which means she’s evolved for a diet rich and varied in fresh animal ingredients, protein, and fat – not highly processed carbohydrates and starches.
Crude protein (min.) 40 % Crude fat (min.) 20 % Crude ash (max.) 9 % Crude fibers (max.) 3 % Moisture (max.) 10 % Calcium (min.) 1.9 % Phosphorus (min.) 1.4 % Magnesium (min.) 0.1 % Taurine (min.) 0.2 % DHA (min.) 0.3 % EPA (min.) 0.2 % Omega-6 fatty acids* (min.) 2.4 % Omega-3 fatty acids* (min.) 1.0 % Total Microorganisms* (min.)

*not recognized as an essential nutrient by the AAFCO Cat Food Nutrient Profiles.
YOUR CAT IS UNIQUE
Your cat or kitten is unique and feeding requirements will vary with environment, age, and activity.
That’s why we suggest starting with the guides below, and then monitoring weight and adjusting portions as needed. Feed twice daily and remember to always 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 Tundra 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.
Metabolizable Energy is 4120 kcal/kg (535 kcal per 250ml/130g cup) with calories distributed to support peak conditioning; 39% from protein, 17% from carbohydrates, 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 5 Biologically Appropriate principles are simple and mirror the freshness and variety of whole animal ingredients that cats have evolved to eat.
RICH IN QUALITY ANIMAL INGREDIENTS (90%) AND PROTEIN (40%)
All cats are adapted for a diet rich in animal protein. Their sharp teeth and body mechanics are designed to metabolize protein and fat from animal ingredients. ORIJEN is created to nourish your cat or kitten according to her biological needs.
- 90% quality animal ingredients (2/3 FRESH or RAW; 1/3 gently dehydrated)
- 10% vegetables and fruit
- 40% richly nourishing animal protein
- NO gluten, potato, or tapioca
UNMATCHED FRESH MEAT INCLUSIONS (2/3)
Fresh, whole, quality animal ingredients are the foundation of award-winning ORIJEN foods.
- 2/3 of ingredients are FRESH or RAW, supplying your cat with essential nutrients in their most natural and nourishing form.
- 1/3 is dehydrated at a low temperature for a concentrated source of nourishing protein that cannot be supplied by fresh ingredients alone.
AN ABUNDANT VARIETY (8)
In nature, cats benefit from an assortment of animal ingredients. 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 Tundra features a rich diversity of fresh, quality animal ingredients in Biologically Appropriate WholePrey ratios to nourish your cat’s peak health:
- Fresh Boer Goat from New Zealand
- Wild Boar from Texas
- Fresh Venison from New Zealand
- Whole Arctic Char from cold Yukon waters
- Free-Run Duck from Kentucky, France and PA
- Ranch-Raised Mutton from New Zealand and Australia
- Whole Steelhead Trout from Ontario Lakes
- Whole Pacific Pilchard from Norpel (US)
Mother Nature matched the nutrients in whole prey animals to perfectly meet a carnivore’s dietary needs since predatory animals like wildcats and wolves, consume the whole animal.
WholePrey represents the evolution of ORIJEN foods, incorporating fresh, whole, quality animal ingredients from meat, organs, and cartilage or bone in ratios that mirror nature and eliminate the need for long lists of synthetic supplements.
The WholePrey diet is a nutritional treasure:
- Meat – 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.
- Edible Bone – a rich source of minerals including calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium in a natural form your cat’s body can easily absorb.
FRESH VEGETABLES & FRUIT (10%)
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 Tundra is a protein-rich food featuring small amounts of fresh vegetables and fruit that release sugar slowly, dramatically reducing the potential for fat storage.
