Both of my female cats had kittens. My one cat, princess, only had two and they're both happy and healthy...two months old. My other cat, Marley, had four kittens about a month ago. One passed away during the first week because he wasn't getting enough food (I blame myself for this death because i should have been checking on the kittens more). I felt super terrible when the first one died. Today, Marley lost another baby. He was laying on the floor and ended up being stepped on. He had a seizure for a minute and it looked like his head was swollen. I knew he wasn't going to be okay because he wasn't blinking or moving, just making weird noises. He ended up dying and now I can't stop feeling terrible. I wasn't the one who stepped on him but I can't help but feel like it could have been prevented. Maybe if he wasn't laying on the floor he would be fine now...I don't know. I just can't stop crying. I feel like the poor little thing didn't even get a chance to live a happy life. My sister feels even worse than me (she's the one who stepped on Him). We just both feel so terrible...I really wish I could turn back time...

That's heartbreaking.  A similar thing happened to a friend of mine - he stepped on their kitten lying on the stairs as he came downstairs.  I nearly shut a kitten in a door once - it had scooted in behind me without me knowing.  Luckily it was OK, but kittens are such active little furballs and so unpredictable, and sometimes accidents happen.  I know how badly you feel, I know that feeling of losing such a sweet innocent creature.  

The first kitten that died might have had some health problems - my cats' kittens always seemed to get enough milk, and four kittens isn't too many for a normal momcat to feed, so I don't think you should blame yourself for that, because it just might not have been a healthy kitten to begin with.

I hope your remaining kittens do well, and that you have a lot of fun with your furry friends as they grow up.
