the rattling your cat is making is because it has probably broken up inside as this is the usual tell tale sign, and could well be causing a blockage and hence your lack of power

1 of 3 things to do first.

Take the CAT off and replace.

Take the CAT off and clear out and re-fit.

Take the CAT off and fit CAT replacment pipe.

Try one of these and see what happens then.
