Orijen Cat Food Review
We all want to make sure our pampered pets are being well looked after. Cats have high expectations and certain standards, they demand the very best care from their owners – and who can blame them? Who wants to lounge in a dirty home, eat sub-standard food and play with a chewed-up piece of string? Not kitty, he has other ideas – a cosy bed, interactive toys, plenty of fresh water and cat food on par with the haute-cuisine served in the best restaurants.
We think your puss will be suitably impressed with the food produced by Orijen – A Canadian pet food company with over twenty-five years of experience in the field.

Food for Thought
Choose the food that’s most appropriate to the needs of your feline friend. Think about the age of your cat (is the food appropriate for all life-stages)? Does your cat have any specific health needs? For instance, is he on the tubby side or does he have a sensitive tummy? Personal taste may also come into play – if your cat is a picky eater a well-flavoured food (such as one enhanced with liver) could encourage puss to tuck in.
As a general rule look for food with natural ingredients, no artificial flavor or preservatives and that clearly shows the ingredients. Feed your feline companion well and he will be healthy, happy and enjoy a purr-fect life!
