Personally, I'm not sure how anyone has the patience to wait 2-3 days (can take 5-7) for critters shipped Priority.
Actually long distance is my preferred for priority shipping.
Fla to the North or far West is a flight on the same plane right next to the express packages. 2 days to Washington State and SoCal several times.
Holiday season shipping is always a nightmare.
