There are some stores that sell imported pet foods but are not very common depending on the area (more common in urban centers like Delhi, Bombay [now Mumbai], etc). My parents were originally from Calcutta (now Kolkatta) and while there are a few modern style "supermarkets", most are open air markets with fresh meats and veggies. My aunt and her family who still live there take care of 3 cats and a stray dog, all of whom are fed on table scraps. Also, while not necessarily everywhere, a sizable majority of Indians (mostly Hindu and Jain) are vegetarians. My grandmother was as well and would not even touch a meat product. She would leave milk for her cat, and the kitty would supplement his diet with wild field mice. Also, when my family lived in Grenada (in the Caribbean, not Spain) we fed our dog and cats boiled chicken or baked fish because it's healthy and not processed, and certainly a lot less expensive than canned pet food. P.S. If I could not read the language on the can, I would be more scared the picture of the cat represented the contents and not the intended recipient ...?
Nope. Very recently dog food has started doing rounds and people think - oh it's the rich folks and their shenanigans. In a country where people die of starvation even though there are plenty of government grains rotting, pet food is a luxury not many can afford or care to buy. Even foods like Olives and Pastry sheets are very hard to find.

Often food for pets contains highter quality meat then human ham. Especially cat food as home cats are very fussy :)
You must have gotten a meowthful to know how it taste
Do they not have cat food in India?
