Feed them dry catfood. It keeps their teeth healthy.

One of our guys has allergies so we get Blue Seal’s By Nature tinned food. No corn, soy, or gluten. But it is pricey. The guys love it, especially the fish flavor which is uber-stinky.

You need to use an institutional sized cans, so you can fit larger cats in them.

My cat only eats dry cat food. No fish, chicken or anything that is not in the form of dry cat food. She only eats from a white bowl and will yowl for food standing 2 feet from a full bowl until I point her to it. I think she has no sense of smell and only recognizes food by sight so she only eats what she was given as a kitten, before I acquired her.

If it is like the cat I have a couple of decades ago, you will just have to try various brands until you find some the cat likes.

Our two kitties split a (small) can of Friskies in the morning. We also leave dry food (Iams) down all day & we give them assorted treats (Pounce, Meow Mix) on occasion (like every couple of hours). They prefer the pate style canned food to the shredded. But they’ll eat the shredded stuff if I mince it with a fork.

No, my kitties are NOT spoiled!

Friskies or Winn-Dixie canned and Purina Cat Chow (indoor formula) dry. My 3 chow it down.

You will add many years to a cat’s life if you keep their teeth healthy. We have four kittehs, and it’s dry food all the way.

My Manx will only eat dry food, he will walk away from any canned food. I have to feed him with one of the auto feeds that holds 3lbs of food because I will get woken up in the middle of the night if that bowl gets empty.

Dry food only for my catz. And they do sometimes get to clean the leftovers out of my sardine cans. Suprisingly, they don't care if it's in mustard, hot sauce, or oil, they clean the cans.

Just started getting Trader Joes dog food cans for my “goggiez”, which is great, and knowing TJ’s reputation for value and quality, I’d suggest trying their kitteh food!

I feed mine kibble - Iams Indoor Weight and Hairball Control. One advantage of former street kittehs is that they don't turn down a free meal.

One tabby will eat only dry food and a little milk with dinner.

One tabby will eat 1/2 can of anything, most table scraps, and dry food.

One Doxi will eat any left over cat food wet or dry, milk, table scraps and cat poop.

My cat, who I named my username after, became diabetic after eating dry food. Specifically Science Diet that the vet recommended. Dry food is high in carbs and some cats’ pancreases cannot handle it. It also makes them overweight despite the labels claiming otherwise, and dry food has no bearing on teeth protection.

I was able to get this dry food addict kitty off insulin by getting him to eat canned food only. As for brands, my cats all shun the healthy stuff. They are fickle but they do prefer Friskies’ seafood varieties and Whiskas in the pouches.

My cat is very picky and also allergic to fish. We feed him a mix of canned and dry: Buffalo Blue dry turkey & potato recipe and their canned turkey & chicken
entree. He likes both a lot, but favors the dry.
