Hi Mimi
Its great that you want to help animals but sadly sometimes the help they need is more than can be given at home.

it sounds to me like these kittens were very sick indeed and thats why they died.

very young kittens need very special care and if they are sick need to see a vet.

Check this page out on my site. there are a list of animal charities in the Florida area which may be able to help you


In the mean time all you can do is to gently clean any mess off of the kitten. Make sure it is feeding from his mum and getting enough food. Keep him dry and warm.

best wishes kate
