All the time!
After seeing a post with an awful picture of a wheel covered in blood because of the seam down the middle, I dreamt that it happened to my girl even with her wheel from Larry! Or I'll dream that she's choking or the power goes out.
It's the worst!

I'd find the link for you, but I don't want to see the picture again somehow. It made me feel sick! I was so hoping it wasn't real, but the OP knew the person who had it happen.
I think Nancy either moved the post to product reviews or had her repost - can't remember. It was a silent spinner and just so awful.

I take Alaska to bed with me too! It probably drives her crazy, but oh well
Hedgie parents do what they have to do!

So awful...I feel sick thinking about the poor thing!
My wheel had been making noise too, but I re-assembled it and now it's okay, not sure if it just wasn't tight enough or something, but maybe try that!

I have dreams about my Mildred all the time. At least twice a week. Usually they are hibernation-attempt dreams, where I check on her in the morning and she's unresponsive and cold to the touch and and and *shiver* I honestly think it's because I read things here at HHC almost daily about preventing hibernation attempts and warming up a cold hedgie. Not to mention that it's winter now so more and more people are having trouble with heating! And the influx of new members/soon-to-be-owners asking about heating. The more I think about it, the more often I get the dreams After my dad passed away, I had nightly dreams about my mom & fiance dying. Funny how the brain works, isn't it? Interesting, but super frustrating sometimes >.< Especially on those nights where I wake up and run to check on Milly then run to check on my mom, lol

As a side note, my CSBW also got awfully squeaky for a week or so a while back... I disassembled it (not the roller blade wheel, just the bolt, washer, nut, and wingnut), washed and dried everything thoroughly with mild dish soap, and put it all back together... voila! Squeakiness was gone. I figure I just got something in there damp while washing it because some days I have to do a quick wheel cleaning session Larry is a master with his wheels, so I know it wasn't a manufacturer issue

Yup, I had nightmares about Lily a lot. Especially after she got sick...I had ones of finding her not being able to move, some of her dying in the night and finding her body in the morning, and one memorable one of finding her seizuring and panicking, not knowing what to do. There was another one too, where I'd gotten a new hedgehog as a rescue, and she ended up having babies. I got so preoccupied with the new momma and babies that I somehow forgot about Lily. When I remembered and rushed to check on her in the dream, she had starved to death because I forgot to feed her. Hibernation nightmares were pretty common too with how temp-sensitive she was...I got used to dealing with actual hibernation attempts, but always had that sinking feeling of dread and worry every time I found her with a cool belly. I've had a couple dreams since I lost her as well, where I have her again. Most of those have been happy ones though, where she's just alive again and I'm doing something with her. They're kind of comforting, though they make me sad.
