Nature being nature, as cruel as it sometimes seems, maybe she knew that it was pointless suckling a weak kitten and got rid of it to help the others.

The mother will not consume the skull, they will eat the soft tissue first, and if it was missing you would have to assume that another animal removed it from the scene.
