Dental problems: If your cat's eating habits change, remember oral and dental diseases are common in older cats and may affect their ability to eat properly. Even the best cat foods may not help under these circumstances. As your cat ages, periodic dental check-ups will maintain oral and dental health. If your cat has irreversible dental problems, such as tooth loss, a change from dry to canned or soft-moist food might be necessary.

Good info but I need to know more about what specific kind of wet cat food I can give to my 20 year old kitty who has lost weight over the past few years. She seems to have become fussy and sometimes even refuses real tuna! I want to put some weight on her. Any suggestions? Thanks.
