I've searched and can't find a word (not a phrase) that can be used to describe the action of a person lovingly placing his cheek on another person's check or head. When cats do it (rub their heads/cheeks on each other or on a human's leg, forehead or other body part) it's called 'bunting.' Is there a word in English or even another language that describes this common act of expressing affection to another person by a loved one, parent, etc.?

In English, it is to nuzzle, or nuzzling. You nuzzle when you push your face, or part of your face such as your cheek, against another person's face or neck, usually.
