I've had a cat converter replaced twice, first the driver's side, then the passenger a few months later rattled. It's quite a problematic part on this car, well at least on mine it appears to be. I don't believe they're exactly built to last what with the constant amount of heat applied, so it eventually weakens, but mine hasn't given me an issue since replacement. There is also the long shot that something wasn't tightened enough after it was removed and replaced and now it's rattling. Seems like detective work is order, as Skibik said the sound will transmit throughout so check the entire system, heat shields included if you're able to and keep us posted if you can.
