|Tiki Cat is all seafood based food You don't want to feed that brand exclusively. Seafood is low in protein, high in phosphorus which can be hard for the kidneys to filter out, some types of fish may contain mercury, some cats get addicted to eating seafood and will refuse to eat anything else
There's nothing wrong with Fancy Feast or Friskies. It's affordable for many people and easily available at supermarkets and Wal Mart, Target, etc. There are often coupons for these brands and sales. Special Kitty, a Wal Mart brand, is another inexpensive choice that's similar to Fancy Feast.
Is $45 her monthly budget for food? You can buy a case of 12 or 24 good quality canned food for about that much money Independent pet stores are usually good at letting you buy cases of food. Check with your local store I know that Fancy Feast and Friskie can be bought in cases at chain pet stores and Wal Mart but the selection isn't huge Just 3 varieties in a case of something like "Grilled Collection" or "Saeafood Lovers".
The bag of TOTW dry food should last a few months so your Mom will only need to spend $45 for canned food next month Could your Mom feed canned food twice a day and just leave some dry food out in between?
Oh and definitely add water to the canned food to help make up for the lack of water in the dry food. A well hydrated cat is a healthy one Some cats will eat soupy canned food, others will not. So just experiment with different amounts of water to see what the cats will eat.
