The check engine light would be on for any OBDII car missing a catalytic converter. The ABS light could be something serious and very expensive or just a low 12V battery. The 2nd gen Prius throws all sorts of crazy warnings when the 12V battery is low.

In place with emission checks I wouldn't touch it with the missing cat. Who knows what got screwed up when they were cutting the cat out with a sawzall. I really doubt a generic $114 replacement catalytic converter from ebay is going to work and clear the codes.
