Hmm, did you say you were "going 60, but, revolutions were too high"?? That's beginning to sound like transmission issues? If you are lucky it's only a computer or speed sensor??? Why did you replace the cat?? I would suggest that you take it to a professional mechanic...

I was going 70mph and then it lost power and went from 70 to 50 . I took it to auto zone to check what was wrong with it and they said it was the cat but it still doing the same . One of the error codes said Vehicle speed sensor cvt

There is a recall on the transmission that is good for upto 120k miles. It needs a new transmission, mine did the same thing. Dealer replaced free of charge. Have them check your vin #
