Which dry cat food from Walmart?

Looking for some cheap good dry cat food for my cats. Doesn't have to be the best, but something between healthy and cost effective. I been buying the meow mix or Purina brand, and haven't been consistent in staying with one brand. So confused by the selections. As much as I want to buy the all natural ones like "good life", blue, etc, I can't really afford it. Would want to stick to a Walmart brand, because it's just easier to access since I live nearby one. Any advice to which one I should stick too? Thx

Pretty much all the dry cat food at Walmart and other department stores and grocery stores suck. The good stuff is at Petco and PetSmart bought in the larger bags. Blue Buffalo also sucks.

This stuff here in the 12 lb bag is the cheapest cat food that I can recommend:
It's 40% protein and around 20-22% carbs

This stuff in the largest bag isn't too expensive IMO and better
better, since it has less carbs and higher protein. That and the Purina Pro Plan 45 which is 45% carbs

The cheap store brand canned cat food at WalMart is actually pretty good. The huge cans that are only $1 each are a great value and very low in carbs as well. For a 22 oz can for food that I give to a diabetic cat this is quite a value:
Just get some of those canned food container lids and keep the opened one in the refrigerator between feedings.

If you insist on buying cheap dry food from Walmart, just buy the one with highest % protein. "Expensive" cat food is cheaper than vet bills, and IMO feline diabetes is preventable with the right food.
