A WOMAN whose cat went missing during her move from the Grosvenor estate was turned away from the land where she had grown up when she went in search of her pet.
Ceri Harrop, 23, lived at the Black and White Cottages, near Poulton, for 20 years with dad Pete Harrop, a former herd manager.
She lost her cat Cassie during the family's move from a home on the estate three weeks ago. Ceri said management had agreed to allow her back to look for the lost two-year-old moggie.
But last Saturday Ceri, now living in Gresford, cycled over to the estate only to be met by a security guard.
Ceri said: 'It was outrageous. I was told I wasn't allowed on the estate by a guard.'
She added: 'I rescued Cassie when she was a kitten.
'We found her abandoned. She's probably back in the same situation now, in the woods - she could be dead.'
Dad Pete Harrop said: 'This is mean minded and shows what the estate can be like.'
A spokesman for the estate said: 'She has not been treated any differently to anyone else who lives off the estate.
'In the current climate of terrorism the safety of the families means that no-one without the right entry fobs is allowed on the Eaton property.'
He added staff were keeping an eye out for the cat and Ceri was welcome to make an appointment through the estate's deputy agent to visit the farm.
