It depends on if the cat's energy levels drop significantly after it has been neutered. Usually there is little change after the procedure; some cats calm down and become a little less active while others will present no change. A small change in activity, by no means causes a cat to become overweight if you change the amount of food you feed according to how active the cat is and increase its daily playtime and activities.
