    The good news is that you have tons of options.

    First, go canned. That'll help with the weight problem.

    Nature's Variety, Natural Balance, and Evo come to mind as foods that offer what are called novel protein sources. In other words, unusual meats.

    Nature's Variety Instincts (canned food) offers beef, rabbit, lamb, duck and venison. I believe their Prairie line of canned foods also has a good variety of protein sources.

    Natural Balance has a venison & green pea canned food that is reasonably priced and is pretty decent.

    As Mick S said.

    Why do people feed cats fish in the first place?  Most cats hate water.  So where did some cats get that appetite for fish other than indulgent old maids looking for fancy food "treats" for their "little princesses"?  Cats sure don't go fishing like bears do.

    Opt for a pet food which does not contain fish.  Look for a pet food rated as near to 10/10 in the Top Rated Cat Food page.  Good luck!
