I'm just confused because of the "ing" ending.

To give a false appearance of: feign sleep.
To represent falsely; pretend to: feign authorship of a novel.
To imitate so as to deceive: feign another's voice.
To fabricate: feigned an excuse.

With the -ing ending, it could be either a present participle or a gerund. (Vero, be sure to check your spelling -- feigning!)
