Dog owners are in the majority in the U.S.  According to the latest “American Pets Poll,” 52% prefer pups as pets, while just 21% would rather have a cat.  But few people believe in the stereotypical “crazy cat” lady or man.  Just 23% think “cat owners are weirder than dog owners.”  And the feline family rules when it comes to less convention animal companions.

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.
