The girls eat Purina NF canned. I purchase 2 cases for about $58, which works out to roughly $1.25/5.5 oz. can. I just purchased a 4 pound bag of Hills K/D, for $17.50-ish. They only get that for treats (about 2 tablespoons each, twice a week...so it lasts forever!)

I spend way more on cat food, than I do for myself!

Taste of the Wild dry - $23 for the 15lb bag

Wellness - $1.29 for a 5.5 oz can, about $1.90 for a 12.5 oz can (I buy them in a case)

EVO is about $1.95 for a 12.5 oz can.

It is $13 for a 3 lb bag of Royal Canin kitten, about $22 for a 7 lb bag. I know it is interjecting opinion, but I am much happier with the price vs. bag size for the Taste of the Wild!

Felidae is about $8-9 for a 7lb bag. EVO is around $18 for a 7 lb bag. Wellness is about $18 for a 5-7lb bag (depending on the kind of Wellness dry).

I don't know the prices of a lot of the other brands off hand. These are all at Pet Supplies Plus, my local pet... supply place! I am in central northern Indiana.

I am in London, England. (so prices are in GPB, and weights are in g or kg, best way to find weight and currency conversion rates is by google but at present £1 GBP = just under $2 USD, ie double my price to get US conversion)

I order most of my food via zooplus, meaning that most is imported from mainland Europe but with no overheads associatated with running a shop/store:

Dry (I only buy 1 dry food so don't have the prices for others)
Royal Canin Fit 32 - £42 for 10kg

Wet foods:
Bozita tetrapak wet food - Produced in Sweden, £0.17 to £0.20 per 100g (good quality, processed but very high meat content, no hormones or additives besides vitamins/minerals, this is my personal 'great value for money, good for your cat' food in Europe)
Almo Nature pouches - produced in Italy, £0.93 per 100g (premium food)
Applaws cans - Produced in England, £0.77 to £0.83 per 100g (premium food, recommended by top breeders)
Cosma Thai - Produced in Germany, £0.45 - £0.59 per 100g (I find it a bit starchy, unneccesary rice content but still a good food)
Cosma Lamb/Chicken - Produced in Germany, £0.28 per 100g for large tins, £0.71 for small (just what it says on the tin, no additives except vitamins and minerals)
Nutro wet pouches - £0.86 per 100g, a mid-range food compared to the above
Eagle Pack canned - £0.62 per 100g, imported mid-range food
Animonda Carny - £0.23 per 100g, mid-range food
Whiskas "oh so...." - £0.39 per 100g, very poor quality food, the supermarket cat food of choice.

If you are in the UK and can order online, you can't do better than Bozita for value for money. It is not quite as good quality as Applaws (which is an outstanding food) or Almo Nature, which is also superb, but Bozita is better than anything you will find on supermarket shelves, and cheaper too.

i am also in the UK, i feed James Wellbeloved for dry, price varies, but I get a good deal through the rescue, so will state the correct price, which is £11ish for 2kg (I buy 10kg bags).

Wet - mainly Natures Menu at the moment, think I paid around £4.70 for 12 pouches. They also got some Bozita on offer yesterday.

I am going to do a Zooplus order tomorrow and see what I Can get them, I dont often get Bozita as teh girls can't get through that much food, so unless I have a lot of fosters in, it is just too much. I do buy senior food, but can't remember what i last got. Think they had Almo Nature senior last.

Mine are fussy with Applaws, but it is only complimentary, so need to make sure they eat something else on days they get that.

Innova (red bag) just went up to $42 per 16lb bag.
Innova canned went up to $1.95 for 13oz can.
These prices are at Pet Supplies Plus. I think Chuck & Don's Pet Food Outlet is a tiny bit cheaper, but location is 30 minutes out of my way.

I'm in the Minneapolis suburbs. I'd love to switch to something more economical, but I am just too overwhelmed with all the food choices to deal with it right now!

In SC I feed Wellness grain free canned to my boys. I get the 12 pack of 12.5 oz cans, which is about $20, therefore about $1.65/can.

$35 for a 12lb bag of NV Instinct or $20 for a 4lb bag

$2.38 for 13oz cans of EVO

$0.99 for 5.5oz cans of Merrick

And I buy all of our food in northern Michigan [despite being in Detroit half the time].
