I am not sure if there is a way to specifically prevent the over-grooming, but it sounds like the solution is reducing the stress-level of your cat. Make sure your cat feels at home, has hiding places and gets to spend some quality time with you, especially with grooming. If that doesn't reduce the stress and the over-grooming, then I would recommend "Good Cat" by Pet Organics. We got our cat as a 7-month rescue, and there were times when he went 'crazy'. We started him on Good Cat, figured out the right dose (too high and he sleeps all day), and he was much happier. We weaned him off eventually (after a year). We also used it on our 2000 mile road trip, mixing his dry food with some water and good cat to calm him down in the car. This is a natural product that just calms and soothes your cat. Maybe this will help.
