How do I manipulate integers as characters

I have a little code that converts seconds to days, hours, minutes, and seconds.  I want to create one string variable of the form "days:hours:min:sec", but I am having no luck using the strcat function because my variables are integers.

int days = 1 ;
int hours = 2 ;
int mins = 3 ;
int sec = 4 ;

char ss[256] ;
sprintf( ss, "%d days %d:%d:%d", days, hours, mins, sec ) ;

%d means the string will contain an integer parameter.

%2d (or another number) means integer parameter width is 2 characters

%02d (or another number) means pad integer parameter to 2 characters with leading zeroes
