Kibble can generally be left out for days without spoiling. However, it needs something (usually a grain) to bind all of the ingredients together to form its solid shape. Therefore most kibbles are high in fruit, veggie, and/or grain content, which is not great for cats. 

Notice how raw diets clearly advertise their meat percentage ("96% meat, organs, and bone" on Ziwipeak for example) but kibbles do not. They hide this information, which is why I don't have it for most of these foods yet.
