Would litter containing dust make 8 week old kittens sneeze?

This is our first go around with fostering and we have 3 eight week old kittens. They were healthy coming out of the shelter but just needed a place to stay and recover from getting fixed. I was reading and had no clue that you shouldn't use clumping litter when they are this young.

They have been sneezing a bit more than they should but overall don't have runny noses or eyes as I cant see, lower energy, or less of an appetite. Is there anything else we should know going forward about things to avoid?.

    I used to use shake and vac but it caused the cat to sneeze non stop so stopped using it.. Anything that aggravates their noses, dust.. Strong smellin things

    8 weeks kittens getting fixed? how is that even possible? I got my cat at 12 weeks and his parents' owner said he was on clamping litter and we bought the same brand, so no problem and no sneezing

      Female cats can get pregnant as early as four months and the earlier you get them fixed, the better. 8 weeks is considered to youngest time that is safe to fix them
