You can kiss goodbye all the domestic pets if we were gone

That’s a wishful thinking. Take all the domesticated animals and put them to the grinder cause vast majority of those cute animals on r/aww will have miserable existence before their number become very small . Homo sapiens are just part of nature and our extinction will have major consequences before some kind of balance is restored after millennia or millions of years . There is always a period of struggle before every major event . Never forget that .

Species have been going extinct far longer than humans have been around.
