Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. Is Leo neutered? Cats have facial scent glands that they rub on things to mark them. It's possible, especially if he is not neutered, that this behavior could be due to hormones.

No sorry
Cat Veterinarian: Dr. Rachel, Cat Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Okay, then this is normal male hormonal behavior. The fix is to get him neutered.
