His eyes had been shut for years, but for a moment they had been opened based off an optical illusion. They were now permanently shut, and a light blue mist began to come over the creature and he floated into the air.
As the vets told his owners the news that he had died from a coma based off of natural causes, his entire body left the room to make his way to the afterlife where he would see his elderly owners soon enough in the sky one day.

Luckily enough, as he heard the gates open, his eyes had opened for the first time in a long time.
