Because wet food is 75% moisture cats digest it better and feel fuller quicker which is good for their weight. Thinner cats are healthier then over weight cats. Also wet food helps maintain urinary health. Wet food contains less carbohydrates which contribute to crystals in the urinary tract. My oldest cat Sam who is 13 has had a history of urinary problems. One time he required surgery. I spent a fortune on prescription cat food until I got a new vet and she told me to feed him wet food. Sam has had no urinary problems since I started giving him wet food 2 years ago.
