In the same price range and avail at many grocery stores is purina naturals ... about 1$a lb... maxxium at walmart is a touch less and way way better ... reg cat chow IMHO is a better choice
what about Sportmix? petfooddirect.com shows a 33 pound bag for around $18 - that'd be $1.83 a pound. it's carried at my local feed store.

That is a decent food but I think your math is a wee bit off
it is roughly 55cents a lb
I bought a bag for my cats thinking it was cheaper and was giving them indoor friskies dry food and they like it but noticed that one was having blood in his urine. I thought well he is older and developing issues. But then one of my other cats was doing the same. I removed the food and went back to the indoor friskies and they are better. Something in this food was causing a problem or stressing out their systems and/or they could not metabolize something in this brand of food. There must not be enough ash or too much magnesium. I was going to check out what was in it since I already discarded the bag. Won't be getting this again tho cheaper it could have killed my cats, hoping there is no long term issues with their kidneys now.
Just wanted to give you my results.
