|Unless you already have a crystal kitty, then yes, you can feed wet one feeding and dry the other, like Merlin said, thats what I do, I can't afford to feed wet only either.
The key is to keep them flushed out, like Merlin said, so mix the wet with water, so its real soupy, especially if your only feeding wet one feeding. The other key is to feed a dry food, that is grain free. I feed Blue Wilderness, wet and dry. Yes, its more expensive, but in the long run, no vetty and no sick kitties.
If you feed a good quality grain free food, you will find, you feed less of it. Mine get 1/2 3.0 can in the morn, and believe it or not, only get 1/8 cup dry food at night and I wouldn't want any more weight on them, mol, and this is per my vet, she figured out the kcal and based on their proper weight.
I tried the FF route, to try and give them wet both feedings, the kittens threw it up and the others were so sick, they had to go to the vet, cost me more in the long run. You might want to reconsider feeding Purina, which is Friskies and FF, after reading this.
Boy kitties are prone to crystal/urinary/bladder issues, I have one, and you need to avoid any fish flavored foods and treats. He is the only one, that gets wet, mixed with water, twice a day, he has to, and when put on Blue Wilderness, his crystal/urinary/bladder issues went away.
I tried giving him, wet in the morn and dry at night, his bladder issues came back, his urine was too concentrated, and it burned his bladder walls. My vet asked, what did you change? I told her, she said he *has* to be fed wet twice a day, I did , no more issues.
