bootasmogriffic from the Encyclopedia Encyclopidica

...the first known bootasmogriffic creature was a small kitten in Oxford who, at the slightest rainfall, would metamorphose into a large, winged Griffin. It would fly about for a few minutes, metamorphose back into a small kitten, yawn and take a short nap. More recent bootasmogriffians include Morris, the feline shown on Fancy Feast cat food commercials and Michelle Pfeiffer...
