I wrote "les chatons ne veulent pas quitter la maison". Not accepted, why wrong?

It seems that "sortir la maison" would translate as "go out of the house," but "quitter" would mean "leave."

The English translation is deceptive...again. "Leave" should be replaced with "go out of" to relate to how "sortir" should be thought of.
