Ticking type noise

I have noticed for a long time now that on start up I get a ticking noise.Not really sounding like valvetrain.A tapping/ticking noise that is consistent in note.Usually only hear it on cold start and usually goes away after a minute sometimes less.Thinking it could be a heat shield tapping on exhaust or maybe a cat going bad.Think it's exhaust related.Does not seem to be motor.Could maybe be pulley/tensioner but not sure.Usually does not last long enough to find it.Anybody ever have this?
