CAT question was created by John Curtis
Have a 98 suburban 280 + on the chassis. The cat is plugged and I'm not finding any evidence of what caused it to fail. I always assumed that CATs are killed and they don't just die...

Is it possible that it died from age/milage? Or do I need to continue looking for what killed it?

Thinking out loud always helps me in the process.

Depends how much history you know on the vehicle, one serious backfire can plug a cat or one flooding with fuel.

Update.
I didn't really have much vehicle history other than knowing it was bought at an auction after being rear ended (used car dealer)
Without finding anything mechanical to kill the cat, I replaced it. With the old Cat off I took a look inside and it was broken up inside. It's been shipped.
