Our cat has always eaten "wet food". Although we always put down water for her, I don't think I've ever seen her drink from it. (Although I do see her out in the garden sometimes, sucking on and chewing grass, so maybe she gets water from grass and other plants, as well as from the "wet food".
Canned cat food in the UK tends to be a bit rubbish, so we always get the somwhat premium brands of food in foil sachets, meat or fish-based (but often these days including some kind of vegetables....).
I've tried to tempt her with "real" food, e.g. best quality chicken, cut up small (cooked and raw), but she's not at all interested. Quite unlike our previous cat who loved all forms of "human" meat. Whenever we had a joint in the oven, at a certain point he'd come into the kitchen and pointedly investigate the outside of the oven. We then knew that it was time to check up on the joint, and inevitably, it was ready to eat (at least for those of us who don't mind our meat a bit rare... ).
He also rarely appeared to drink water, until towards the end of his long (~19 years) life, when his kidneys started to pack up, poor beggar. I think we got him at a younger age than our current cat (I think he was not far off being a kitten, whereas our current cat was a young (rescued) adult). I suspect that our current cat was already too used to commercial cat food by the time we got him to learn to adapt to "proper" meat, whereas the previous cat had been young enough to adapt to what we offered him.
