My three year old male catahoula nibbles (like he is eating corn) on the back of my two year old Bengel cat's neck to the point where the cat is drenched in dog spit. The cat loves it, he purrs and rolls around on the floor. The dog is not aggressive about this nor has it ever seemed to be anything other than playing and possible affection for the cat. He doesn't snarl or growl or anything at the cat. Are his 'love bites' something I should be worried about? Why is he doing that to the cat?
Its just what it is, "love bites" its another way of a dog showing affection. It can also be a a way of dominating your cat.
Have you ever seen your dog try to mount your cat while doing this?
Dogs do this to eachother. Its nothing you really need to be concerned about. If your cat enjoys it, all the better. Except for all the dog spit which I'm sure you've had your share of. LOL

First answer is absolutely right, it's one of the bonding behaviors in a pack both showing affection and grooming behavior combined. Plan on wiping kitty down but I wouldn't worry your dog isn't checking the cat out to see if it needs salt.
They're bonding! How adorable!!!!
You got it Poochlover!
i think it is so cute when they do that......or kiss each other
