Except for the pet food, and only then if cooked I wouldn't even attempt to eat anything on that list. There is far too much other better food
sources available if you only first get over the "civility" of them.
There are numerous insects available that are edible even in the city. In the city you can live off of pidgeons, they are in the dove family and I can
attest to the fact that dove is delicious, we go every season. You don't even need a gun to kill them, rat traps and mouse traps are worth their
weight in gold in survival situations, just put some out on a window sill with bait on them and you'll eat just fine.
They work wonders in yards as well for catching squirrel, mice and small game. Even if the traps don't kill the larger varieties of small game such
as rabbit or the neighbors cat, as long as its tethered and staked off you will have the game when you come back to check the trap.
There are numerous edible plants that are growing in most peoples yards such as dandelion, rye grass and other grasses, roots of most grasses and
shrubs are edible, as well as acorns and the like and inner tree bark of many trees.
I would much rather take my chances with these than eating on the tongue of my old workboots.
