He/she was on his/her (using personal pronouns because the animal is not an "it") right side on a stainless steel (I suppose) rolling cart, being unceremoniously pushed by a person. All fur intact, nose and lips and other skin pink, and the light pink showed through its white fur. Eyes open, mouth at ease in what I would have otherwise called a slight "smile".

I pictured myself as a kid and telling myself, "He's just not feeling well and he's being taken to the doctor!" or "It's a fake, not a real animal" but couldn't lie to my adult self.
