You will not find any of these brands at a grocery store (they only sell garbage)

Dry: Evo, Nature's variety instinct, Blue Buffalo, Wellness core, regular wellness

Wet: Wellness core, Evo, Innova, Nature's Variety Instincts, Weruva, Merrick's Before Grain, Go!

Since she is young, she may not have become attached to any food in particular yet. I woul stick with the classic fancy feasts (lowest in carbs) but I would (this is just my personal opinion, I am not a vet) try some of the no grain-low carb canned foods so she learns to find them palatable.
Mine are older now and switching them has been a small nightmare.
I also find that the mfg. that produce the larger cans offer a better cost profile, especially if you have more than one cat.
I had stick shocker with the Pro-Plan and the Fancy Feasts over the last few years, which got me rethinking my whole feeding situation.

Glad to hear your Lily is doing well!

Our Emily loves her wet food given twice a day and sometimes a little extra at noon. In between she seems happy with the dry.

5 lbs give or take a bit. It's usually a pound per month of age up to 7-8 months, then it starts to diverge.

Wow so she really was under weight she was 2.9 when I got her now she should be in 3.5 or so don't know for sure but she did gain weight not too much just enough where you feel bone but is not extreme nor do you see them.
