That depends. If you allow your cat to go outside, using cat claw clippers and shortening the nail might not be a good idea. Cats use their claws to climb, and for defense—if they’re outdoor cats they most likely are active, which means the upkeep of their claws is taken care of naturally from climbing.
If your cat stays indoors, they may benefit if you use cat nail clippers to tidy them up. If you don’t, they can either grow and curve into their paws, or your cat may try to take care of the problem by shredding your walls and furniture.
