"grinning like a treasure cat"

Only found a handful of these. I suspect there are some other interesting reinterpretations of “Cheshire cat” out there somewhere, but I haven’t located them yet. Examples:

I did love it all and was like a treasure cat with a smile from ear to ear.

Glen pulled back from the kiss as he couldn’t stop smiling, like a treasure cat in a loot of gold.
