clogged , check the rest of your exhaust after cat to see if it gets hot
you can buy a no contact thermometer for less than $55.00
but the shop that installed the cat should have that

The catalytic convertors are no good.They are severely restricting flow.Do not drive until repaired.The car could burn,or damage to the engine could result.

well you could have had a cat converter go bad before thats possible,either you now have a piece of the old broken cat stuck in the exhuast pipe,or you have what i think is a bad ignition module/coil pack and spark plugs causing a major misfire causing it to over heat and have no power,,,or its out of timing causing the same issue,,its odd it has no codes,no ses light,if its a bad coil its got a ses,,these are just a few ideas its too hard to tell without seeing the car

First you need to stop driving the car !,the problem you have is massive over fuelling causing the Cats to super heat this can cause a fire risk under the car,you need to take the car to a qualified mechanic/garage ASAP,You have probably damaged the Cats already but if you keep driving they will melt and colapse internally and block the exhaust gasses causing lack of performance and even non-start.
