My cat, too, is a very fussy eater. She also used to vomit a lot (not hair balls). About 3 years ago my vet recommended Royal Canin Sensible. She took to it straight away to my great surprise, and has been on it as a daily staple ever since. I supplement this, (really just for variety not because she needs extra nutrients) with Solitaire Rabbit (by Purina). She gets 1/2 a tin every day. Solitaire tin food is the only wet cat food she will eat, and even then only the rabbit. She does, of course, get the occasional treat, ie left overs (of ours) of brie cheese, milk once a week, tuna (she is mad about tinned tuna but it has to be in brine, not oil), avacado, potato crisps (one only). When she was sailing with us in the Atlantic she once tried a raw flying fish but eventually gave up on it, settling instead for a piece of freshly caught dorado! Oh, and she is NOT fat! Well, possibly slightly portly now in her advanced years (14) but still as fit as a kitten

I have two kitties on wet-only diets, for health reasons. I feed Wellness wet and Weruva,and they seem to really like them both. Weruva is made in a human food facility, and it looks like something a person would eat (but the ingredients are tailored to cats.)
Some of those you mention, I've not heard of, but I do feed Royal Canin Siamese & Purina Pro Plan( Sensitive Stomach). I have fed those two for many years & I can highly recommend them, as my cats are very healthy...
Eve ------------------------------------ Nothing tastes as good as being slim feels.
My cat Marbles is 1 year old. She had a urine infection when she was about 6 months and since then she has been on a wet only diet. We feed Felix as Good as it Looks as this is the only complete wet food I can get her to eat. Have tried her on all sorts including Grau etc from Zooplus but she is not interested. We also give her a small tin of Applaws each day which she loves.
She has however started turning her nose up at all of her wet food, except the Applaws. We have tried a lot of types but the only ones she will eat are complementary - she won't touch anything which is complete. The vet gave me some small trial packs of complete dry food to try her with, most of which she loved.
Royal Canin Indoor 27
Josera Emotion Culinesse
Pro Plan House Cat
We also tried Applaws dry food and Defu Organic dry food but she was not impressed, had a couple of pieces, then turned her nose up at it completely.
Does anyone have any advice or opinions on the three dry ones she liked? Or have any recommendations of other wet or dry complete foods which might be worth trying?
Just as a side note, we still plan on giving her a tin of Applaws wet each day (which I add extra water to), and she does drink water out of her bowl and fountain when she is on a dry diet (doesn't touch water when she is on a wet diet)
