|I feed my 3 cats canned food 3x a day. One cat was a kibble-a-holic for 5 years and she gets about 10 little kibbles at bedtime still (or she will kill me in my sleep ) and the other two, I just use it as a treat, they may get 4-5 little pieces as an occasional treat, and what I usually get is a bag of Halo. I do not free feed dry food anymore, I did for years and my male cat Taffy developed urinary blockage and so I switched him to canned food and he has had no problems since.
I mostly feed Wellness, grain free (they don't seem to like core as well even though I know it is better), but they don't eat the fish ones (since I have heard it is not good for urinary health and mercury and contamination being an issue so I avoid it), they eat chicken turkey and beef (1 is allergic to beef though). This is my go to food, unless I get a good deal on something else, I buy Wellness. My cats have a gorgeous coat and seem to tolerate it better than any other food, however, Beep throws up if she eats the beef one, so I assume she is allergic, so I don't buy that one any more, just turkey and chicken.
I will occasionally rotate and feed the following canned brands:
Halo (Beep is picky and she LOVES Spot's stew and Spot's Pate), she even eats the peas and carrots.
Nature's Variety Instinct (I love it but I can't afford to feed it all the time )
Natural Balance (it costs almost as much as wellness now so I don't pick it as often)
Merrick (I currently have thanksgiving day and grammy's pot pie - got a deal since it is being discontinued and a new line coming out) My cats seem to do well on it, Beep won't touch it though.
I have never fed Blue Buffalo canned but when my cats ate dry, BB made them drink excessively, like way more than any other dry food, I didn't like that and I don't buy it not because I think it's a bad food, but it's nearly as much as other foods that I feel are better
Newman's Own Organic - I fed it for a while but my cats seemed really hungry on it, so I stopped feeding it, my daughter feeds her cat this food, and he seems to do ok on it. She gets it in the grocery store pretty cheaply and it seems to be an affordable alternative to her rather than fancy feast and Iams and a bit better.
Fancy Feast - My feral will ONLY eat this cat food. She will not touch any other food, she will stick her tail in the air and walk off, and she will not eat any dry food either. I even tried Friskies, thinking it was similar, she wouldn't touch it.....she will literally walk across the street without a backwards glance at me if I put anything other than fancy feast in her bowl. She will eat leftovers, chicken, hamburger, steak, but no other cat food. Go figure, picky ungrateful turkey, I love her anyway.
My cats eat better than I do, without a doubt
