I agree with your comment on Friskies. When the girls were alive they were on Friskies and were so sick. That is what started me on my cat food odyssey almost 20 years ago.

As far as dry food for Sam, he eats either Innova in the red bag or VF by arkat. However, Sam is not the reason for premium cat food. Mr. Spunky will nibble on dry food and does not do well on the cheap stuff. It just makes him sick with kidney stones and vomiting.
The fellas get three foods: Fancy Feast canned for the vitamin content (Grilled versions only), raw rabbit from Nature's Variety, and cooked tilapia every day. The rabbit and tilapia are recent daily additions in the last few months. (There's a long story behind this.) I also supplement with taurine and some bone meal from time to time. Already Spunky has lost weight and is looking fit and I am hoping Sam will too soon.
They eat better than I do.
Meowmie to Mr. Spunky, Samwise, Lady Jane, Bob, and Callie.
