It might also help to tell us which ones you are feeding your cat that you are trying to get backups for. Everyone will have a different opinion about all of the ones you have listed. So, at least if you tell us the ones you prefer then some of the members might be able to identify comparable ones from your list.

This chart might be of help to you for the wet food - Wet Cat Food Ingredient Chart - Google Sheets.

In my opinion “9 lives” Is a poor Quality and Friskies wet and dry even though that’s the only thing my cats will eat other than FF isn’t so great either. I think they might have changed their ingredients, a lot of times when I open a can of the filets Friskies there’s more gravy in it than the actual meat.The shreds look terrible! My cats don’t care for the chicken but I had to order it because the beef was getting hard to find.
FF doesn’t look bad when I open the cans.
Royal Canin is expensive and I don’t believe it’s worth the $. Not a fan of dry Cat Chow.
Earthborn looks good but can’t get my cats away from Friskies

Since a d is temporary unless your cat needs to gain weight, 9 lives and whiskas are unhelthyunhelthy1 instead Fancy feast classics

Friskies does make a "Gravy Lover's" version of many of their foods.

Our cat, Casper, is a "Gravy Licker." He'll lick all the gravy off his food and leave the rest.
Most of the time, he does come back for seconds and eventually finishes off most or all of it but it's clear that he thinks the gravy is the best part. Because of this, we try to buy the "Gravy Lover's" version. Not always, because we want to encourage him to eat all of his food but we still want to give Casper the kinds of food he likes best.

Are you sure you aren't accidentally buying "Gravy Lover's" thinking it's the regular kind?

As for dry foods, Purina One or Cat Chow are the ones we feed Casper.
Cat Chow is the one we feed regularly. Purina One is the backup.

I've been feeding Cat Chow or Dog Chow to every cat or dog I've ever had, since I was a kid. All of my father's hunting dogs ate Purina with occasional meat scraps mixed in. All of our family pets ate Dog Chow and all my cats ate Cat Chow. Casper eats Cat Chow and has been since shortly after we adopted him six years ago.

I've been feeding Purina for more than fifty years and have never seen a problem related to food.

It would also help to state what country you are in so you're not getting a bunch of brands / varieties that are not available where you are. I'm not familiar with some of the brands you listed.

TCS has some articles on how to choose the best food:

How To Choose The Best Dry Cat Food? – TheCatSite Articles
What Makes The Best Canned Cat Food? – TheCatSite Articles
Grain-free Cat Food – What Does It Mean? – TheCatSite Articles
How To Choose The Right Food For Your Cat – TheCatSite Articles
Choosing The Right Food For Your Cat – Part 2 – TheCatSite Articles

Cats being cats may not want to eat what you pick, though :crazy: A general rule is to feed your cat what he / she likes that you can afford and can easily find and has decent quality ingredients. Some brands like Cat Chow are super cheap and widely available but has really poor quality ingredients. Sure cats can survive on a poor diet but they won't thrive and be relatively healthy.

I'm feeding Purina One and Iams dry foods. Friskies, Fancy Feast, Sheba wet foods.
I was feeding Cat Chow, but I think the food dyes were making my cats puke.

out of those in my opinion would be Royal Canin and Tiki Cat. I actually use Tiki Cat for wet food but for dry i use Orijen but it is expensive but has high grade food in it.

Where do you think?

Cat chow and meow mix are both about the same tier quality wise. I only ever used it when feeding Snuffles, a sick dumped cat that showed up on my property.

She was literally eating garbage, I saw her eating a napkin from a dumpster at the building behind my place.

It's better than used napkins and candy wrappers at least. But not something I would feed my pet on a regular basis.
