It sounds like the fuel system for your 2005 Pontiac Bonneville is loosing fuel pressure while sitting. The best way to confirm this would be to connect a fuel pressure gauge, the gauge should hold pressure after the engine is turned off. If it does not, that would indicate a leak which would require further diagnoses. I would doubt very much that is problem is being caused by the fuel filter or the catalytic convertor.
