static electricity!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
How do you deal with static electricity on your cats? My Persians hate being groomed in the winter months because of it. Any ideas? I've heard of rubbing them with a fabric softener sheet, but wonder if that's safe or not.

It's fine to use the dryer sheets, also they make a spray...I can't think of the name at the moment, it's GREAT. Actually a persian breeder told me about it and I used it on my Maine Coon not too long ago. I will have to see if I can find the name for ya.

I find that running a humidifer helps keep down the static electricity also. I had to get one the first winter I had Spike because I couldn't even touch him without him getting shocked.

I am going to have to try the dryer sheets though... as soon as I can get to the store to get unscented ones anyway.

My cats like to crawl under the blankets with me at night. During the winter months if I stick my head under and watch I can see all the crackles as the move about.

I heard that the dryer sheet works too, but I would be worried about them licking off whatever is on a dryer sheet. Anyone know if it is ok?

Everything I have read suggests that there's nothing lethal to cats in the dryer sheets. Other things have said that they don't leave enough of any chemical to cause harm.
tess, House Of An-Ju makes 2 good sprays. One is the Texturizing spray, and now they make a new one called Anti-Stat spray.

Thanks Sandie.

I typically don't use dryer sheets, but I am going to give it a shot, and maybe start using it on my sheets, maybe that will help them with the crackles.
