As Lady M, says it's normal behavior and he's just showing his dominance over Mr. Bear.

Your "baby" will be sexually mature pretty soon, though. Have you spoken to your vet about when to neuter him? Most people agree that if it is done as early as it can be done safely, there is less chance that males will develop other bad behavior, as you call it, like marking. Six months is the norm, I think, but I know some vets are doing it even earlier, at 5 or even 4 months. With a Maltese, a lot depends on their size.

Brinkley did this often before neutering...afterwards...I think he has only done it once to the cat and once to me.
With correction, he stopped and hasn't done it again...after neutering it will probably happen less..

yeah, its normal. but if you want him to stop...distract him to do something else. do it now before he starts doing it A LOT and in front of company. lol
