Default Fleece stuck on nail, help!

I noticed today that one of the pieces of fleece I cut for her to dig is now stuck on her nail, I tried to remove it gently but it won't come off and I am afraid to hurt her if I pull it any harder. The only way I can think I could remove it is to cut the nail, at least the tip, but the nail clipper won't be able to read it, are scissors a good idea?

You can try to give her a (foot)bath, maybe the water will soak the fleece off or makes it easier to pull it off. How big is it?

Hmm you could try to cut the nail, but I can't see how it is stuck (under the nail, around) so I don't know if you'll cut too deep. If not so, I think you can just cut it. Maybe with some smaller but strong scissors?

Did you try pulling it towards the direction the nail is curled? So like pulling the fleece down, or towards the hedgie a bit? Try flipping her on her back to get a better look at it if possible.
