I understand... I don't have any really good grain-free foods available near me (except wellness, which petco just started carrying) and have to have my EVO, etc. shipped. The only reason I can afford shipping is because the website I buy from will ocassionally send out a 22% off your order coupon... I wait and buy ~4 months worth of food at once and use the coupon, which basically cancels out the shipping cost.
As for dry food, nutro makes a good kitten dry (nutro natural choice) nutro's products are available in a lot of locations and there might be a dealer in your area...Nutro also has good coupons and goes on sale often... Walmart has a house brand dry food called "maxximum nutrition", which comes in a kitten formula and is the best dry food they sell (not sure if there is a walmart in your area).
Of the foods commonly available at grocery stores, I feed friskies (it's cheaper than fancy feast, sheba, etc. and comes in larger cans). The protien / fat levels aren't bad on most of their cans and there are several flavors, although I'm not sure if they carry a kitten formula.
From the foods you can find in your area, I'd just compare them and get the ones with the highest fat/protien content and no fish (or very little fish).
