    Anyone else having problems with static?

    I've started my long spring grooming sessions ... And holy static! Poor Cass' hair is very soft and seams extra prone to a static charge. I move my hand off him and back, and Zap! Poor guy nearly jumps out of his skin or tries to get away. I don't remember ever having this problem before :s

    Today I was scratching him on lead after ring work and my phone alarm went off. I went to get it and he was curious so I laughed and held it out to him... He went to touch it with his nose, and Zap! He took off puffing and blowing. It took me 20 mins of going through every ringtone I had with him before I got him to semi stand still again. Pretty sure we will need to do more phone desensitizing after that episode :s

    Yes, I am.

    Although no big jolts, sometimes a lot of small one's while I am brushing him.

    Mine is shedding like crazy, and it's building up a lot of static electricity. While brushing I shock him all the time, it makes me laugh but he acts like I'm doing it on purpose, about on par with beating him :( Oh well, I try to "discharge" on something metal for now, and he'll be shed out soon.

    Yup, just this time of year. Rub a dryer sheet over him, it'll take care of it!
