Male cats have a tendency to get urinary tract infections so they need wet food with low ash content such as Wellness and Wellness Core wet food. They need alot of water and since cat's don't always drink enough, they can get the water from the wet food. I add about a half cup of water to a quarter can (6 ounce can) of wet food twice a day plus I free-feed Wellness Core, Evo, or Blue Buffalo dry food. You do not want to feed your cat anything with meat by-products, wheat, or corn. By-products come from the "five D's"--dead, dying, decomposing, decaying, and diseased animals. Cat food companies also buy dead cats from shelters that have been euthanized because they were sick or because the shelter was too crowded, and they do not have to put it on the label. It just gets put under "animal by-products".

Since your cat is not overweight, then a good choice would be Wellness or Wellness Core Wet Food, found in Petco and other Pet product stores. You won't find it at the supermarket because supermarkets only sell "junk" cat food that I wouldn't even feed to a mosquito!! They sell 3 oz, 6 oz. and 12 oz. cans. Of course the larger cans are cheaper. I would feed a quarter can (the 6 oz can) in the morning and a quarter can in the evening to start. I would also feed Wellness Core dry food--just put enough to last all day so your cat can "graze" throughout the day. Cats will nibble up to 20 times a day. And the Wellness Core (it comes in a coppery brown bag) is protein based. It's a little pricy, but will be ALOT cheaper than the vet bills will be after feeding junk food to your cat. The supermarket brands of cat food is like feeding your cat McDonalds every single day!!! Of course they love the taste of the junk food so when you transition the cat to the new food, do it slowly or else the cat may not eat it. Mix a little with the cat's old food. Do this for a couple of days, and then mix a little more of the new food in with the old food. Do this for a couple of days, increasing the amount of new food every couple of days until eventually its just new food only. Also, when you are at the pet food store, please pick up a couple of can covers that fit right over the can of cat food so you can store the unused portion in the refrigerator. It will spoil if you don't refrigerate it.
