Leaving stray cats on the road

Q: A stray cat was living in our home since we gave her food. One day it was pregnant and came with 4 of her kittens and all of them were living in our house in a bathroom. We provided food and shelter for them. Later, we were not able to look after those stray cats as they grew up due to cleaning issues. Many dogs were around our house and we've seen other stray cats dying because of that. So we decided to take all of them including the mother to a street where there were people looking after other cats. One kitten grabbed my dress and cried to leave me. But I left it there. It is killing me till date. Now I don't know if the kittens are alive or dead.

Will Allah Ta'ala be angry at me for this inhumane act?

How can I compensate for this? We tried calling adoption centres and giving away to family but no one took it. 

A: No. Show the love to your siblings, parents and those who have some obligations towards you, like neighbours and family members.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
