Answer:  GUT FEELING

(A lot of people checked in on yesterday’s Jumble Spoiler, presumably to see which order of the words was the intended.  Fortunately, our good nephew, David L. Hoyt, came in with a clarifying comment.  Either way could have worked, but it turned out the way that I spoiled it was THE answer.

Today we – surprisingly – have a new clue word, in “buggy”!  Our good friend, ralis95, will have to update his world famous clue word database.  I guess it’s been a few weeks.  Both “kaley” and “cintee” have been used as jumbles in the past.  The answer letter layout did a wonderful job of obscuring the answer.  I did not see GUT until I checked off the letters for FEELING.  Then, it punched me in the gut!  Just kidding.  Amusing cartoon.  It looks like hubby is holding some kind of wrap.  And, Fido looks like he’s never heard his master like that before.  Good Jumble.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
