I have seen this many times with wild cats, being their past and diets while carrying a litter. Most times its nothing neither the mother did or a disease. All mammals with poor diets can easily get mastitis, simply put, rotten milk. When this happens, the clostrum the babies need at birth is litterally poisoned and the babies have no chance. I highly doubt that the mother whether wild or not smoothered the kittens.
