It makes sense in my brain that if it were axle wrap it would be more pronounced in 1st gear, I'm thinking that would be the most torque the axle would see.

inertia is not the only force that you would over come, wind resistance can take allot of torque to push trough.
regardless it would be during any application of torque, and the frequency of the vibration would be a fundamental of the rotational speed of the drive shaft. in first gear the frequency would be very low.
in my theory, the vibrations would be most noticeable at the torque peak of the engine and would tapper off above and below that point.
but your motor/transmission mount theory has merit, they could be wrapping up instead of the axle.
...but, the cat lover needs for weigh the input and make his own choices on how to proceed.
does it vibrate when you are heavy on the gas, neutral on the gas, no gas but in gear( decelerating).
