When we had our first cat we only ever gave her dry food until she was ill once and I had to mx her meds with wet food. It kind of stuck then and she always now has one ouch a day and a bowl of dry down all the time.
Gypsy (kitten) has been having dry food down all the time and then about 1 kitten pouch a day.
I could never get my cat to eat wet food, he's always eaten the dry 'complete nutrition' type biscuits plus some boiled chicken for a treat now and then. I asked the vet about this and he seemed to think that a balanced dry food is much better for them than wet.
We got two kittens from the same litter. One would eat both wet and dry food - the other only dry food. For simplicity, we give them good quality dry food - Purina or Iams. They also have fresh fish a few times a week and occasionally tinned "people" tuna.
