My cats don't like anything with chunks. They will lick the gravy and leave the rest, so I have to give them pate style wet food. I do notice that they will get more excited over certain brands though. As a treat I sometimes give my cats Purina Pro-plan chicken and liver or Purina pro-plan salmon and ocean fish and they seem to like those the best. But to prevent finickiness as well as give them variety, I alternate between Iams, Nutro, Pet Gold, and Purina Pro-plan. I want them used to different textures, not only for the sake of variety but just in case I might have to change their diet in the future. Cat foods that have more broth in the can to pour over the food tend to be the most palatable to my cats. Perhaps the reason they like Purina Pro-plan is because it has an oily fatty broth that they like so much.
I think cats are more likely to eat what you put in front of them when you spoil them less. For example if they know you're going to put down dry food soon and they prefer the dry, they may just hold out for the dry food. Try reducing it to the point of training your cats that they must eat or go hungry but don't over do it. You don't want them to go without eating for too long. Don't let them skip more than a meal in a day's time. I noticed it worked with my Spotty reducing his dry food. He used to be very much a dry food kitty, and at heart he still is, but dry food is no longer free fed to my cats. I only put out about 1/3 of a cup dry food spread over 2 small meals for my cats to share and they don't get that treat until they eat their wet food. So twice a day they get canned food with a small side order of dry. So Spotty hungry in the morning and evening has learned to eat his wet food. He eats it slowly and he's a grazer but he eats it because he has learned he must eat what I put down in front of him to meet his energy needs. Plus he seems to enjoy it now. Actually, he likes to eat, period.
