Default Best wet foods for cats?

Rockefeller's diet needs a serious makeover. We are starting his switch tonight with a higher quality food that I can get my hands on. We've been looking into this for a while because of his gastro issues and extremely poor muscle mass, and he goes through a large bowl of water a day so I know he is dehydrated.

We will probably end up having to ship. Any recommendations on foods? I've seen Wellness and Weruva at the top of the lists a lot.

I like the Merricks stews, wellness cans, and Nature's Variety Instinct Cans.

Though it really depends whether your cat likes pate style or stew style or something in between.

I second the Nature's Variety Instinct cans. I also like Before Grain's cans. Taste of the Wild recently (This summer) came out with wet food for cats as well.

If I were you I would try out a bunch of different kinds. My cats would not touch Prowl. They hated Evo. They love blue buffalo dry food, but I can only get them to eat fancy feast wet food. I'm considering trying out premade raw for them by Primal since it would be a far sight better for them than fancy feast.

Wellness has a ton of flavours, and most are grain free.
Ditto to Merrick.
Ditto to Weruva (this one is really stew-like).
Natures Variety has a few nice ones.
Go! Natural is a favourite at my house (and has two grain free varieties).

Mine wouldn't touch Prowl either.

Prowl! And it's dehydrated, so ships for less as well.

My Opossum thinks that TOTW canned food and Blue Buffalo Spa select food is pretty darn good. Apollo will eat anything so he doesn't count, but if it pleases an STO then you know it has to be tasty!

I also suggest rotating, cats can easily become tired of a single brand, it can also be very hard to switch some cats, dry food is covered in sugar and animal fat so it's very attractive. I feed all of these:
Wellness
Felidae
Weruva
Innova
EVO
California Natural
Merrick
Before Grain (they have complete formulas now)
Go! Grain free
Newman's Own
Blue
Nature's Variety

A warning about Weruva, it is low in calories so if it is fed as a sole diet you need to feed more than you would of most foods.

I also know the brand Ziwipeak is good but it's expensive around here, it's not made in the USA.

Try not to feed too much fish, it is often addictive and something about the bone to meat ratio can lead to urinary issues, not sure exactly how it works.
