Static can be so troublesome in the fall and winter months of the year. Here are some handy suggestions for eliminating static cling in fur.

  • Before touching the cat, soak your hands in normal handcream.
  • Avoid plastic brushes or combs as well as wire slicker brushes. Instead, use metal and teflon coated.
  • During grooming, lay a wet paper towel on the fur.
  • By an anti-static spritz (sold in pet stores).
  • Lightly rub down the coat with a fragrance-free dryer sheet.
