Ford Focus tapping noise (cat converter?)

I have a 2004 Focus, 64,000 miles. 1, 4 engine Saloon.
Only bought last week! Already had to have the Cat replaced. Didnt mind so much as I have a 12 month warranty and a new cat, but ever since it was replaced I have noticed a tapping sound as if coming from under the car. A hollow tap tap click kinda sound. Usually notice it when I stop the car and the engine is still hot, tends to stop after a minute or 2 but today I noticed it also whilst driving slowly. This bloody car cost me 12000 Euros appx 20,000 Dollars. Any idea what is causing this, is it dangerous? Thanks

I really appreciate the reply. Thank you. Are you sure tho? My uncle is a mechanic, he thought similar but when he heard it also happens when I am actually driving he was concerned. Its just like there is someone under the car tapping with a little spoon. Fast slow fast slow for a few minutes then stop, but as I said it also happens when I am driving?
