Treasure Cat were an instrumental stoner rock band from Morgantown, West Virginia. Active between 2003 and 2010 this band was notable for being the main project of one Will Mecum between the first and second tenures of Karma To Burn. The bands sound, as similar to Karma, was driving instrumental rock accentuated by wild, unpredictable bass grooves and driving percussive rhythm.

Treasure Cat was formed by Mecum, Cross and Brewer int he wake of their respective previous bands all dissolving, getting together and jamming out instrumental rock. With their earliest known show on Halloween in 2003 the band mostly played shows in the West Virginia and Maryland areas. Eventually the group would self-release a studio album in Choice Cuts and collaborate with Sons of Alpha Centauri for a split album, three tracks being a work incorporating both groups as Alpha Cat.

The band's last known shows to date were in early 2010, a couple of which shared along with the newly reformed Karma To Burn at the time.
