So what's the magic number for animals to be considered "domesticated"? How many captive bred lines do you have to have before it's considered domesticated? Guess what? Cats are wild animals too. What makes them more domestic than a snake? Fur?
And by the way, most of the frivolous lawsuits you talked about above are urban legends. They did not actually happen. I believe there is (or at least was) a website dedicated to debunking these supposed lawsuits. I'll see if I can find it.
