Are they feeding frequently? Is mamma being attentive and are they in a nesting box where her body heat should help them keep warm?

I know there is some type of incompatibility of blood type where the mothers antibodies can be fatal to kittens but not sure what to look for. I would assume since it destroys the kittens red blood cells, it would cause signs of anemia.

Breeding is a lot more than putting two cats together and hoping for the best.

I would provide more detailed info for the breeders with experience on this website. Did you not buy your cats from an experience breeder? They should be able to mentor you, assuming they have actual real experience themselves.

I'm nor sure how I missed this topic. I am so very sorry for the loss of two kittens. Breeding bengals takes more than just mating the two and watching the female give birth. And you need a vet on call who will be happy to take care of any kitten issues. What if your queen need a C-section to deliver? Preparation for all emergencies is a must and you need to have all types of supplies on hand: suction, syringes, newborn formula, etc. There is a lot of information on this forum and online in general on breeding bengals. It is not for the faint of heart. There is so much you need to know.
