it sounds to me like they died, not because they were ill, but because the mother did not know how to properly care for them. if this was her first litter, it is very probable. young queens (as female cats are called) are often unable or unwilling to properly care for their first litter, and without human intervention lose all or most of them. she will probably be a better mother in the future. so, i dont think it was the vet's fault, since nuthin was really wrong with the kittens. and its not your fault either since there is no way u could have known that she would not take care of them. it is good that u have now taken the remaining kitten away from her, altho it may be difficult to rear it as it will require near constant attention until it is at least a few weeks old. hope it works out!
