In Cats

I had one of 7 eight week old kittens start flailing around on the floor today. He appeared unable to breathe.  I had just fed the kittens, so I thought he might be choking. I reached into the back of his throat but didn't feel anything. He started turning blue, so I tried the himlich maneuver, but nothing came out and he started turning blue. I started CPR, doing chest compressions then breaths. Air was going in for awhile, but blood and foam started coming out of his nose, and he passed away. It was horrible. Do you know what could have possibly happened? I'm so devastated.
