My two were raised on Fancy Feast pate, all flavors, as adult cats they eat Friskies pate and also the shreds and filet variety to switch things up for them, buy what you can afford and like I always say the best wet food for your cat is the ones that they will eat consistently.
Hang in there! I have two male cats that have only eaten canned food since they were kittens, I too didn't know about kibble and urinary blockage in male cats until I found a web site explaining the merits of a wet food diet.
I feed only wet food due to the fact that m male cats can easily develop urinary blockage on a kibble based diet, they eat mostly Friskies pate because that is what I can afford and they always eat it and sometimes the best food is the one your cat's will eat consistently
Mine don't scratch the furniture,I put double stick tape on the edges when they were kittens and redirected them to their scratching posts and cardboard scratchers that I had in just about every room. My problem is they try to use the carpeted stairs that go into the finished basement to scratch...
My two were brought up on Fancy Feast classic pate ,my vet was pleased with their growth and weight gain. My personal philosophy is the best food is the one your cat will eat without pulling your hair out in frustration.;)
