I tried feeding my cat who is on dry Nature's Variety instincts but she wouldn't touch it so I switched to Origen and although she doesn't inhale it like other foods, she will slowly eat it. I really like the ingredients.

Snowy, I have yet to see ANY dry food that has absolutely no vegetable. However, Origen seems to have that potato the furthest down on the list of ingredients, which means there's less of it, which is why i decided to buy it. they have two flavors, fish and chicken and even between the two of them, one has more veggies than the other (i think I'm using the chicken one).

Granted,I can only read the ingredients of the foods at my pet store, but they have a pretty large grain free selection. That being said, I may try something different next time (just bought a 15 lb bag) just to give them some variety.

You might wanna check out GO Natural Fit & Free because they are beating Orijen in that category..... Potatoes are 7th down in Orijen and 11th down in GO Natural.... GO also has the first 8 ingredients coming from a meat source.... Orijen is only 6.... If I was gonna feed kibble again it would defiantly be GO.....

I am looking at something without potatoe and realised Evo doesn't have potatoe, then last night I found out Nature's Vairety Instincts doesn't have it too though it has pea starch way down the list, that's fine with me and the price is cheaper than Origen and Evo. I'll just stick with one brand of kibble next time, so its between Evo and Nature's Variety, need to work out the cost again.

I think the Evo kibble is slightly more expensive than Orijen but the Evo canned bought in the 13 oz is way cheap

Orijen has just changed their formulas and I know the dog varieties have cut the potatoes and have 10 meat ingredients, plus organ and tripe. The bag of regional red that I have for my danes has 17 animal products before any veggie or lentils. It's a far better food than it was before.
I know here EVO is cheaper than Orijen and there's more in the bag.

This irks me. No offense to doggie owners because I love dogs too. But dogs get all the fun and new stuff. I wish people thought kitties deserved it too!
