  1. Absolutely amazing people!! 110% effort on everything from communication to making sure the kittens are safe and happy! Had to have my OSH baby flown from their facility to Colorado, and he was lovingly “packed” and comfortable and arrived safe and sound to the airport, purring immediately when I picked him up! They called me every step of the way, letting me know how he was doing, and took the extra care to watch over him when he first arrived from overseas and didn’t feel like eating right away. They made absolutely sure he was healthy, vetted him, and made sure he was comfortable and calm before the second leg of his journey from FL to CO. I will absolutely buy any further kittens through Zeus pride! I couldn’t be happier with their service! They truly care about both the kittens and their new families!
