With regards to fish, you can read this thread Human Tuna vs. Cat Tuna
The link isn't working for some reason...

Also is grocery store wet cat food also junk? Because my cat so far has only like the Sheba tuna enter form our grocery store.... We have 2 cans of that that we just bought. I read the ingredients and I only didn't like the meat by-product and the added coloring. Everything else seemed Ok to my knowledge. I wouldn't feed it long term, but I'm just trying to find what she would eat.

Personally, if I see coloring or by-product, I don't feed, so I don't buy grocery store food. But I know Sheeba has the chicken only range, with no by-product, its shredded chicken. Anyway, grocery or none grocery, so long as your kitty is willing to eat some wet, I suppose it is still better than dry in most ways, at least your kitty is kept hydrated and not starved to death, lol.

ET would rather starve than to eat food that he simply hated - some of those highly recommended foods is what he hated (sigh...what to do). Thank goodness, there are still some other good brands that he will still eat. So, the point is, whatever food, so long as kitty is willing to eat.

Ok, I am copying some of the links laurief posted

Thanks for the links!

Oh I know, my mom bought these, most expensive one in the store. I wouldn't just throw the, away I've researched dog food in depth, and so I know what to advoid. Maybe ill find something other than tuna flavored that she'll eat?
