Car burns oil

07 cobalt ls 2.2 L manual transmission. Car has sat in a garage for a year +. I start it every month or so to keep it alive. Last time I started it, it burns a heck of alot of oil.
Also I installed a cat from the scrap yard and it only has 1 o2 bung (downstream) can I get a pic of the exact location the upstream needs to go? Or can it just be welded in above the cat?

Isn't the upstream 02 in the exhaust manifold?
