We get the question in the nutrition forum all the time: Which brands and specific types of canned cat food do you recommend?
So, let's name some names then, and "dish out" the most popular ones that are often recommended by our members. This list is based on forum mentions combined with our Canned Cat Food Reviews. Bon apetite!
My picky kitties loved this food. My little girl kitty acted like she hadn't eaten in a week when she was eating this. - Denice
Great price for grain-free food for kitties. I enjoy that its not as smelly as other cat food and that my kitten comes running like mad whenever I serve her FF Classics. If the price wasn't enough to adore they also don't have any vegetables taking up space, kitties don't need veggies or grains in their diet. - GraveKandi

Even I like the smell! It reminds me of pate.Wolfie305
The ingredient list is nice, it's low-carb and grain-free, and it's chunks in gravy (my cat usually prefers chunks to pate)...This formula is chicken-free, making it appropriate for cats with chicken protein intolerances, and it's also free of grains and soy. There's no byproducts, either. - LilGreenAstrid
I love that they are completely grain free, their even gluten free! If that wasn't great enough this brand is super easy to find in all major pet stores, and even ma and pa shops. I love this brand and so does Ziggy. I highly recommend them. - GraveKandi
