I have the exact same problem with my 2003 SSEi ever since I bought it with 21K miles. It has 37K and I really hear it rattle when cold..

Took a rubber malot and hit the Cat and it was OK, just above the cat is a heat shield and it rattled big time. Next oil change, when I have the car up a little, I'll investigate and fix. Long story short, get something and reach under there and bang around. See if yours is the heat shield also..
