Price: $0.16 per ounce

Authority is a PetSmart brand that claims to create high-quality, scientifically-formulated foods at an economical price. You can think of this as a slightly better alternative to Friskies.

Like many Friskies recipes, it contains a combination of chicken, ocean fish, and other protein sources. Despite being a meat-rich food, it contains a small amount of brewer’s rice. It’s made with menhaden fish oil, a good species-appropriate source of omega-3 fatty acids.

Though the food does contain brewer’s rice, it’s still low in carbohydrates. Overall, it’s not perfect, but still a respectable choice for your cat’s food bowl.
