Females are the leaders of doggie packs, so they actually tend to be the more dominant sex. Humping is one of the most common ways that dogs display their dominance over other animals. This isn't a reproductive behavior, obviously, but is most likely your dog trying to assert her dominance over the cat. Aside from possibly being annoying to the cat, this isn't a worrisome behavior.
