rabies please help

i am 19 years old and on March 9 2013, i was not exactly scratched but i steped backwards and a cat was on the floor and the cat nails came into contact with my back toe. the incident to place at a temple near my house. there was no bleeding or visible mark but i washed by feet and i came home and told my dad and he did not think i need rabies shots. also some time back i gave the cat milk since it gave birth to kittens. i also brushed it aside because the cat was not acting strange in anyway and then there was some news about a child that got rabies from a cat bite and i freaked out. i saw the cat again in 2.5 weeks where it was still alive with it kitten. at 3 weeks i could not find the cat but its kitten is still there. what are the chances i can get rabies because i cant do anything than think about rabies.

you DON'T have rabies son, so stop worrying....rabies is transmitted by a bite from an infected animal...and the animal would be showing signs of being very ill especially a few weeks afterwards...
so good for you to try and feed these poor strays please keep up the good work.
Is someone taking in these poor orphaned kittens I hope???

you would be very ill by now if you had contacted rabies...so NO reason to start vaccinations 3 weeks later...

ideally vaccines would need to be started within 12-48hours...stop worrying.
