Thank you for your question, there is probably enough scope for a whole new article here! A few simple tips are: 1) Use grooming tools that will not make static build-up worse (Teflon-coated combs instead of plastic, for example) 2) Moisten the cat's fur with water before grooming (most cats dislike the sound of a spray bottle, so a soft washcloth wrung out and smoothed over the fur is a good way to do this). 3) Use hand cream on your own hands before stroking or grooming your cat. 4) Check the humidity of your home and if necessary install a humidifier. Very dry air will make the problem worse. 5) Finally, a quick fix is to scrunch a pair of nylon pantyhose into a pad and wipe all over your cat's fur - this method is very effective in the short term, but it will need to be repeated daily, at least.
