Hesitation while accelerating

So, for the last few thousand miles, my car is not accelerating like it used to. If I hit the gas between 1500 and 4k rpms, I get a bogging sensation and then a surge, followed by a slight hesitation and then more surge. This happens almost up to redline. Some days it seems worse than others. Car is definitely slower than it used to be.

I am thinking it is a clogged precat or regular cat. I had a spark plug blowout ~5k miles ago and drove the car home on 5 cylinders, approx 10 miles. How can I tell the cats are clogged, aside from these symptoms? And how long does it take for a clogged cat to break down and shoot ceramic chips into my cylinders and ruin my engine? That's primarily what I'm worried about.

Also, could it be something besides the cat?
