Belle's had a problem with her fur being staticky lately. I picked her up a couple times today and I got shocked! Is there anything besides water that I can use to solve the problem?

Hi Miss Belle. Meowma said that you can have your people, rub a USED dryer sheet
on you. But to make sure that you are eating a good quality cat food.
You need a lot of Omega 3 fatty acid to keep your fur shiny and not full of static.

Hi P.C.wave
Mom will have to check my food. She feeds me Kit N Kaboodle because she has to be careful of what flavors are in my food since I don't like Salmon flavor and that seems to be in most cat food besides the kind of Kit N Kaboodle that mom buys. The closest Petco is 20 minutes away in a car and and PetSmart is a 30 a minute drive and since mom don't drive it's impossible for her to get out to those places regularly for my stuff.

Wouldn't the softener left in the sheet get ingested if she is grooming though? Not trying to be snarky, just asking. I had this same issue, and it seems to happen if the kits are napping on 1 particular throw rug. If the air is dry from having the heat on, I think that adds to it. I put a towel on that 1 rug, (I think it is the type of fiber that does it) and no more issues. Maybe they have a no-shed spray or the like for cats specifically that may help.
