I guess that would be the superficial theme to this story. At the beginning Rainsford and Whitney have a discussion about this on the ship,

"The best sport in the world," agreed Rainsford.

"For the hunter," amended Whitney. "Not for the jaguar."

"Don't talk rot, Whitney," said Rainsford. "You're a big-game hunter, not a philosopher. Who cares how a jaguar feels?"

So, no Rainsford does not have any feelings for the animal. This facilitates the conflict when Rainsford is being hunted by Zaroff.
