If your old catalyst came apart it may have broke apart and pieces of it got into the muffler or exhaust pipe and can continue to rattle. You may have to tap on the entire exhaust to locate where it rattles and then try and get out broken pieces or replace the exhaust component that got the catalyst in it.
