Geri and Russell's problem pets
Geri Halliwell and Russell Brand have apparently hit a stumbling block in their new romance - their pets.
The pair are said to be dating after they met at the Olympics closing ceremony, and reportedly bonded over their passion for yoga.
But according to the Mirror, the animal-lovers ran into bother when Russell's cat Morrissey flashed his claws after he was introduced to Geri's dog Daddy.
A source told the newspaper: "It was important to Geri that her dogs met Russell because any new man in her life first has to impress them. Sadly, while they took to Russ, Morrissey had other ideas. He eyeballed the hairy beasts the minute they trespassed into his territory, taking an instant dislike to them, especially Daddy."
Russell and Geri apparently had to put the pets in separate rooms after Morrissey "hissed and clawed" at Daddy.
The pair are said to have enjoyed dates on London's Hampstead Heath and Hampton Court Palace.
