Static...!!

I have two cats...

blinky almost 3 years old now...
a persian short haired exotic...


wee monkey...

and scamp....
1 year old Tonkanese/alley
I brought Scamp into combat/entertain the natural tendencies of my persian....
...

and the both of them together.....


My question...and I suppose I should get to it...

is...

Is there a way to combat the static electricity I get when I stroke my cats... it often has all 3 of us jumping... and I worry it will cause my cats to worry about my stroking them....

just about everytime i touch them it gets all fired up...with electricity...

am I just a wierdo??... or is this something you have heard of before????

Hi... I have the same problem with my 4!

Its pro pet salon by 8 in 1 products... http://www.eightinonepet.com

Quote:
Pro Pet Salon Detangling and Freshening Spray - For Cats
Extra-mild freshening formula contains aloe vera and unique coat conditioners to help detangle mats and tangles. Gentle enough for daily use. Baby powder fragrance.
This sounds similar:
Petsafe Anti-Tangle Spray 4415
Pamper your pooch from head to foot with this specially formulated spray from Petsafe £2.99
http://www.petplanet.co.uk/product.a...103&pf_id=3713

PS... scamps a cutie!
I think Johnsons also do something called 'groom spray' or something like that which is for puppies but it ok to use for cats.

well the truth is alot of people products will work too, stuff for shine. Like Tigi "catwalk" ready to shine. but there is a very similar pet product called, Jerob's Bay Rum Polish. Spray one spritz onto a steel comb or your hand and brush through.
http://www.jerob.com/
they have alot of other nice grooming products if you choose to go that route. Also another trick that alot of show people do is take a dryer sheet and after the cat is dry wipe him or her down with it. Or you can add and few drops into a gallon of water and actually incorporate it in their bath.

I really don't think your cat will blame you for the static electricity. My cats and I shock each other (errr....with static, that is*) and they still come back for more petting.

*We shock each other in other ways, too, but I think that's just inter-species ignorance at work.

Welcom to the forum Wizzy. We have to go the inexpensive route, dryer sheets work pretty good.
