Question on String manipulation

Hi,
     I'll illustrate my problem with a program segment.
---------------
int total=100;
CString str = "There are altogether ", str2;

//my intention is to combine the string which will appear
//like this: "There are altogether 100 cats!"
str2 = str + total + " cats!"; // this is improper!
MessageBox(str2);
--------------------------------
My question is how can I combine the whole thing above to have a message which says "There are altogether 100 cats!"?

For your informations, I'm writing my programs using MSVC 5.0, a dialog-based program and working on win98 platform.

Any help offered is very much appreciated!

Replace
str2 = str + total + " cats!";
with
str2.Format("%s%d%s", str, total, " cats!");
