Our kitty eats California Naturals. It is a little more expensive, but it does come in big bags and lots of flavors which might be part of your problem.

I was feeding mine Blue buffalo indoor cat food, comes in a big bag at petco or petsmart but they regurgitate it often so I’ve switched to Purina beyond and they seem to do better on that. I’m concerned there is something more going on here with your cat though if she lost 50% of her body weight in a year. She may have kidney problems or something and I imagine your vet will recommend a food.

We use Orijen, which is a Canadian brand that uses natural, sustainable and regional meats, fish and vegetables. It is also grain-free which is important as grains can cause gas, bad poops and other digestive issues in cats. I don’t know if they sell it all over the place, but we get it at a store called Tail Blazers in Canada. Specialty/raw pet food places may carry it. Arcana brand is good too.

Our indoor kittens right now are eating Orijen mixed with a blend of Friskies, Whiskas, and Nutrience (which is a higher end kibble but not as good as Orijen). 

They also get high quality wet food and some raw nuggets that come in a frozen bag.

I feed my only cat Authority indoor cat food in the chicken flavor. Authority is Petsmart’s in-store brand, and it has some excellent ingredients, which is what I was a stickler for. I didn’t care who made it as long as a protien was one of the first ingredients.<br /><br />I also supplement with a fancy feast can now and again just because she likes it.<br /><br /><br /><br />If you’re having calorie issues, your vet can prescribe you Science Diet A/D canned food. It’s pretty much a bazillion calories, designed for cats who have nutritional needs and/or poor eating habits (Since it apparently smells super good to a cat.) My cat eats it from time to time because it’s the only thing she’ll be in the mood for.

I feed our new little guy Taste of the Wild Rocky Mountain Formula (grain free). I read that cats get most of their needed water intake from their food, so it’s good to give them a little wet food every day. For that I give him a bit of Blue Buffalo Wellness kitten formula. I buy them both from amazon.com and with free shipping it’s cheaper than buying it at the pet store.

Our cat eats Royal Canin Indoor Cat food.

She enjoys it immensely and it helps control her weight since she is less active than an outdoor cat.

My cat eats Blue Wilderness grain free cat food. I only have to buy a small bag, and that lasts me about a month. I’ve noticed on the grain free food she eats a lot less…probably because she doesn’t get hungry as quickly since there aren’t so many fillers.

She also seems to shed less which is nice

I used to feed my kitty Purina but he would throw it up a lot so now I feed him Blue Buffalo for Indoor kitties. Kitties are picky with their food, you can’t just give them a new one all at once – I transitioned my cat over a period of 2 weeks, slowly adding more high quality food to the low quality one until he was eating all Blue Buffalo.

We feed Natural Balance dry food for our one cat without health issues. Our younger cat has health issues and eats a form of Science Diet (which I hate- it’s not a good formula).
