Tina, Welcome to the group. It is very sad to hear about your two precious kittens who died so young. Their mother was probably FelV positive, and small kittens have very little resistance to this awful virus. Hopefully the other two kittens will have stong enough immune systems be okay. Have you had them tested to see if they are positive or negative?
