That is true for me, Sue. My positive is the most wonderful cat I have ever known. Not only is she sweet, she is fearless. She walks on a leash with the dogs and is the leader of the pack. Often we have to wait while she takes tree brakes (she can run up and down a tree with the agility of a squirrel ). I use a retractable leash so that she has some space.
(I could write about her for hours).
I do not know if it has anything to do with her positive status, but she seems to relish life. When we first got her she was very sick and she still attempted to play. Now that she is feeling well, she is relentless. It gives me so much pleasure
to care for really has been a privilege.

There are times that I have wondered if there is something going on with FeLV+ cats personalities. It seems that I have a closer bond with my positives then with the other cats. Also, the FIV/FeLV room where I volunteer seems to have the friendliest most loveable cats. I suppose that could be because nobody ever adopts them. :(
I have never head of any relationship between FeLV and dementia.

So I was just wondering if having a very vocal cat is related at all
to feline leukemia.  I've never had a cat as talkative as my Felv+
kitty Bernie. Besids when he is sleeping, eating or looking out the
window... he is making noises. Maybe this is normal, I don't know. In
the back of my mind I was thinking about the dementia that is
sometimes realted with Felv+ cats.
