Just a thought... I know it is hard sometimes to come up with the extra money for more expensive food than what you've been feeding, but my experience has been that with the more expensive food you will actually feed less quantity and in the end, it really isn't more expensive-just better for them. Cheaper food contains more fillers, so you have to feed large portions to satisfy the animal.
Many, many years ago it was common to feed Purina Cat Chow to your cat. Once Iams came along (much more expensive) their claim was basically "Our food is more expensive but you'll feed less, due to less fillers and have much less to clean up in the litterbox."
I told my Sister-in-law, who was on a VERY limited budget, about it and she tried it and agreed it was affordable because she didn't have to feed so much.
I've also talked to several pet owners who upgraded the food they were feeding and found that coat/skin/digestive issues cleared up.
In the end, it all boils down to what your budget can handle.
