Pronunciation: gilt fee lins

Sentence: It always happens when I am packing for a trip, even a short one. My two cats seem to know I am forsaking them, so they circle my legs, sleep on my suitcase and worse, stare at me with those big eyes accusingly. Yes it's the old guiltfelines again. They refuse to eat while I am gone and ignore whoever is serving their physical needs. Then when I return their excitement and curiosity at my return is soon replaced with aloofness. I am being paid back for my abandonment of them for a while. Then, they are back to normal...asking what I brought them, what's for dinner and why haven't I bought any more catnip. Luckily cats have short memories.

Etymology: Guilt Feelings (remorse caused by feeling responsible for some offence) & Felines (cats)
