Hi, My boys went to the vet last week to have their nails trimmed. The black one gave out a couple of yelps as the nurse coldnt quite see where to trim. Ever since he wont come near me, he refuses to take food from me and only lets me stroke him if i catch him unawares. He isnt depressed or anthing, he still purrs and plays and is eating etc.
We havent had them long and they are still settling in, but we were making great progress until now. Will he forget and forgive me :(
Do they eventually get used to these trips?

Just keep your routine going. He will eventually realise that nobody is out to murder him.
