No,none. It is just like if you had your first joint cut off on your finger tips. I have seen cats that can't run or jump like they could with a whole toe. They are in pain, cruel for your satisfaction. Try using many cats posts, an outdoor run with lots of natural tree structure, lots of exercise is key also, get some cat toys that you can use on a string and get that cat running and moving every day. Trim the nails every 3 weeks, get some of those nail caps, praise your cat for using a scratching post, or just forget the cats all together and get a plush cat toy. Not everyone is cut out to have a certain type of animal, all animals do some kind of destruction or mess of some kind. Don't mutilate an animal, ever.
