A can of tuna in water (NOT oil) is ok as a treat smile Bumblee Bee brand and Chicken of the Sea brand each have a couple different tuna in water products. I don't kmow about those cracker thingsthinking If the tuna is in water and has no flavorings/seasonings, it should be ok.

Merrick Before Grain makes a tuna cat food that you can try: http://www.merrickpetcare.com/consumer/products/product.jsp?id=96&page=2&view=list&sort=category_3&order=asc&name=Tuna_&categories=Cat-Before-Grain-Wet&age=All_Life_Stages

I make sure when I give him tuna, it is in a bit of water, and no flavor/seasonings are added, I am positive that I NEVER EVER put any of those things ineek Merrick before Grain is what KIKI and Winter eat, since Chicken soup doesn't agree with Winter's stomach. (If your wondering, KIKI and Winter are my friends, and I am friends with their mum) I checked out the website, the ingredients are good, I definitely will try that!!!

There's a list of good grain-free brands here: http://www.catster.com/forums/Food_and_Nutrition/thread/774137 way to go

Fancy Feast and Friskies have a few varieties each that are grain-free. It's not on the label, though shrug You have to read the teeny tiny ingredient list to check. You can check this chart to see what foods are grain-free and such. It's a few years out of date.

The "best" food is the one that you like to eat and that your Human can afford and can find in the stores way to go

Hi hi,
I'm of the "raw is best" school of thought, but outside of this, high quality canned. The only dry food I'd recommend is Wellness CORE and that's only if you happen to have a cat who is a die-hard kibble addict who will not eat anything else...

Grain-free and named meat sources is more important to me than whether or not it contains "by-products". Cats eat "by-products" all the time; these things considered the "offals" like feet, tails, fur, heads, etc.
It's fine but meaty-meat should comprise the majority of the diet.

Merlin has an excellent post. The "best" food in the world means little if your kitty won't eat it. My girl loves the Wellness with gravy, I know the gravy isn't the absolute best but it's what she wants and it makes her happy.

My senior adopted boy Happy cat would only eat Fancy Feast, it was what he had eaten all of his life apparently and he loves the varieties in sauce - WHEN I could get him to eat. A 3 oz can a day was an accomplishment (he came to us as a hospice cat, we just didnt know at the time) I had tried all the premium brands when we first got him but at 17 years old he was set in his ways.

I'm glad I let him eat what he liked with the little time he had left.

We are midway to transitioning to full raw - now feeding 50/50 canned/raw.

I want to put in a good word for Weruva/Cats in the Kitchen canned food. One of the reasons I like this brand is that their website (www.weruva.com) has all kinds of nutritional data regarding their foods - more than I have ever seen on a company website. Many companies don't like giving out info beyond the Guaranteed Analysis. Further, this is the brand that my kibble addict took to - after trying many others.

The only issue I have with this brand is that it is high in water. If you, like me, have a "gravy licker" that really likes gravy laden foods - its a plus. My cat simply would not touch another brand with lower water. You are just paying a bit more to ship that water around. But when I look at the vet bills I have paid as a result of illness brought about by that CRAP dry food that the vet recommended (you know what brand I mean) ..its money well spent.

This is a good point Dexter. Weruva is a good food, especially for gravy kitties and cats that need extra water in their diet. The only issue I've ever had with it is that it's not as filling as some other canned foods because of all the water but as you point out, if you have to feed a little more that's a small price to pay.
