car dying on 1993 Ford Escort

when I am coming to a stop the car is dying. It will start and run no problem. Could it be the cat converter?

Catalytic converter issues will usually cause a lack of power and acceleration. A dying issue sounds like an air flow issue - too much air, not enough fuel, vacuum leak, intake air leak. EGR valve issue. A good diagnostic test will expose the issues at hand.
