Dog owners are in the majority in the U.S. According to the latest "American Pets Poll," 52-percent prefer pups as pets, while just 21-percent would rather have a cat. But few people believe in the stereotypical "crazy cat" lady or man. Just 23-percent think "cat owners are weirder than dog owners." And the feline family rules when it comes to less convention animal companions. Just over a quarter would choose a tiger if they were to have an exotic pet, to put it at the top of the list of survey options. Giraffes take second place with nods from 20-percent, while 18-percent would like a pet dinosaur. Sixteen-percent would welcome an elephant into their family, and polar bears are popular among 14-percent. But just six-percent think an alligator would make a good pet.
