We have a humidifier on the furnace..I wonder if it is doing the job. I did rub that blanket on her on purpose to make the hair stand on end tho! LOL It's not like she walks around with it like that all day. I can tell with my own skin tho that's it dry in the house. (It is only 5 degrees out there right now!)

Downey fabric softener helps. Not the liquid of course, the sheets. Just rub them with it and the electricity goes away.

I was worried about them licking the chemicals off their fur. Do we know this is safe? If it is, it's a great idea!

OMG! I am so sorry for passing on such a BAD BAD tip!!! My apologies everyone and thank you Dave for the (as usual) great advise. What would I do without you? Luckily, Henry never gets static so I've only done it once. Never again that's for sure!!!
