Static

Is there any good way to help with Static for my Kilala? He's a medium haired and we have VERY HIGH ceilings so any sort of humidifier is out of the question according to my mom.

She thought maybe feeding him food with more oil in it to enrich his coat or just bathing him more often?

I feel so bad when I want to give him a loving pet and he tries to sniff me tenatively and then ~ZAP~ and he runs away.......

it's dry, so marsh with his long silky hair is also 'electrocharged' LOL i found that putting some of the finishing spray (for cats) i have at home helps. It reduces static for about a week, then it begins again.

I use this brand:

not YOU, LOL but on your cat it will really help. i do this: i spay a good amount on both my hands (about 3-5 sprays) and rub my hands all over marsh's back, back of the head and all over his tail.. it really, really helps.

here's his pic, he's a puffy guy

If the ceilings are really high you would need a big humidifier to humidify the space... I know that when I am at work and the guys leave the door to the warehouse open the humidifier isn't worth anything. We had it just nice in the office today at about 45% and in they came, opened the door and it was down to 27% an hour later.

I wish they would learn to close the doors!

Also with high ceilings that is ALOT of space to humidify and for people who aren't home most of the day unnessecory because besides us Kilala doesn't get shocked by other things. So the Electric bill would NOT be fun

I had the same problems with our workers So I changed all the locks so if they left a door open I would lock them out and left signs on all the doors warning them that I would do that. Unfortunately the worst Culprite is my own dad and so he gets locked out ALL the time

It just sounded like an "excuse" to me.

BTW, humdifiers don't use much electricity. And low humidity in the winter causes more problems than static electricity.

I just go by what my mom tells me it's her house and I'm living under her roof. I'm lucky she doesn't do what my dad does. He holds the door open and tells my cat to runaway.
