Default Cats clogged?!?

Okay, My RS-T runs a little bit rich. It's tuned that way for longevity and reliability. It was very reliable for quite a long time, and now has about 120,000 miles on the turbo setup. The last few weeks, though, the car hasn't been running well at all. I've been so busy I've hardly had time to think about fixing it, and I've just left it parked in my driveway. But in a nutshell, here's teh problem:

The car will turn over and run for thirty seconds or a minute, but then it dies. Sometimes It will actually run for a while, and when it does run, it does so perfectly. But then once I turn the car off, I can't turn it back on and expect it to run for at least a day or two. IT sounds like it's not getting fuel, but it definitely is.

I think it's just been running rich for so long that now one (or both) of the cats is clogged. After 120,000 miles, it's certainly worth getting a new cat, but I was just wondering if that sounds like a logical or likely scenario. Any thoughts?
