Amount of memory reported in "cached" column by free corresponds 
to memory used for page cache, i.e. cache memory used for files 
read from disk.

As long as you have [at least some] free memory - it is normal 
that cached will grow.  Any free memory available in system will 
be used by your OS to cache files.
