Perhaps more cats will arrive once they catch word of the steak-fields.

Wow. We had that Millions of Cats book growing up. The cats do indeed multiply more and more out of control.

perhaps the "millions of cats" is more of a foretelling than a head count ;)

It really is a story about millions of cats and a little old man's search for a cat for his wife to love. There is a repeating phrase about how many cats there are. hmmm I did a quick search and found this...
After traveling far away from home, he finds a hillside covered in "...hundreds of cats, thousands of cats, millions and billions and trillions of cats..." This rhythmic phrase is repeated several other times throughout the story.
This part is joined with illustrations of rolling hillsides completely covered in cats. That phrase was a family joke growing up to be used whenever describing any quantity of cats doing something.

While on the subject, there are some excellent art books out there from the residents at the Women's Studio Workshop in Rosendale, NY.
