As mentioned above, the central cause of the static electricity in your cat’s fur is the low humidity level. As such, the best possible way to fix this issue is to raise the humidity levels in your home.
If you are not willing to make home improvements, there are other ways in which you can reduce and even remove static electricity in your cat.
There are quite a few anti-static sprays for cats on the market. However, I consider these to be the least viable option when dealing with static electricity because of the effect that these may have on the cat’s fur.
Another way to add moisture to your cat’s fur is to use high-quality shampoos and conditioners. Products containing natural oils have a long-term effect.
There are a few things that you can do yourself in order to prevent shocking your cat. You should know that these alone will not be enough to make a difference in your static energy issue.
Similar to using sprays on your cat, getting your hands wet before touching your cat could spare you the shock, but it will leave your cat’s fur exposed to tangling, especially if done frequently.
