|Ditto on the Friskies! It's all that we can afford right now. It's pretty much all my three eat at the moment, and frankly, they're doing great. I stay away from ALL fish flavors, and do my best to stay away from fish as a general ingredient. I buy the big cans of Friskies at Walmart for about $0.80 each. I will also feed Fancy Feast on occasion, but it's very expensive for us.
When I was originally transferring a short term foster over to wet food for his diet (he was a very obese 27#), I spoke to my vet about what he suggested. He said that in the research he'd done for his own cats, he felt that that the best wet food was kitten food as it tended to be higher in protein, and had a significantly better carb to protein ratio.
I've noticed in our house, when I get kitten food it seems to last them longer and I find myself feeding less. That's just us, though. The bulk of their food is adult, though.
For any naysayers, Mocha is on a 'special diet' for idiopathic hypercalcemia and Friskies is one of the only brands she can eat due to the lack of heavy duty chemical acidifiers. Also, she just had a full panel done yesterday and her bloodwork came back perfect! "Top Shelf" foods aren't always Top Shelf!
