I noticed that after I shut my car off that smoke was rising from under it. I checked it out and it was coming from where the pipes meet the cat. Any ideas? Car has 146k on it. Keep that in mind. Thanks!

Could possibly be burning a little bit of oil.
And just re-weld it, or seal it up.

I just took a look and it seems like there is a fluid on the cat and a little behind it. I'm still learning about cars so I'm not really sure what this means.

You probably have a leaking tailshaft seal where the driveshaft slides in. Easy to replace the seal, probably not so much to remove the driveshaft for a first-timer. But you'll have to get under there and check, because the fluid could be coming from further up front and dripping back there.
