The one on my Mustang was just flopping around ontop of the cat, not attached to anything. So I just pulled it out.
Usually the top and bottom heat shields have a few chinsy spot welds around the edges to hold them to each-other and the cat. So yours might still be attached by some of those welds. Jiggle it and see if you can tell where it is loose, maybe you can just bend that part away from the cat a lil to prevent the noise. If its loose everywhere except one spot then try to keep bending it back and forth till the spot weld gives up.
