Yes origin is a nice food as well.
Although I don't reccomend feeding any fish based food to your dog or cat. It is higher is salt & mercury.

Salt? I have never heard of that, mercury most likely but then again I eat fish as well so I guess I am eating a lot of mercury too

I would think feeding beef or chicken would be higher in salts than fish.

Iams isn't good for cats? That's actually what our vet recommended! One of my family's cats does throw up a lot, so I'm thinking I need to do some research on this. Besides Blue Buffalo's website, does anyone know where else I can find information about them that I can show my parents?

I don't trust any nutritional information a vet gives. Very very few vets edorse good foods. Which is quite sad IMO.
A good cat nutritional website, go here: http://www.catinfo.org
I don't think it directly mentions iams but it discusses the ingredients label.

And another: http://www.catfoodguide.com/
