I'm with ozeymumof5 and am also surprised he hasn't been spraying.

Well the suggestion of locking the boys up and giving her space seemed to work - she calmed down a lot. She's still not fond of me, but I don't think she's injured at all.
I let my boys out and she was wary of them - but I fed all three (separate bowls) and they were fine after that.
The home wrecker (as he has been named!) on the other hand got their back up again. So for the time being, my three have run of the house and he's separated in the laundry with food, water, litter and a bed.
It's not ideal, and I feel for him but it'll have to do for now. I'll let him out again tomorrow when ex-DP is home to help wrangle and see how they go.
Thank you again

Female cats don't like male cats in their territory unless they are invited. So the undesexed cat would be stressing her out a lot. Maybe try some feliway (in a difuser) to see if it calms them down.

I'd just leave the 'intruder' in the laundry while he's staying, perhaps swap them around and put yours in a bathroom or something for a bit so he can get out and stretch his legs once a day. If he was at the cattery that's what would be happening.

What do you mean you don't have a choice? Tell your ex DP to take the bloody cat to a cattery. Seriously what the hell was she thinking having a strange cat come and stay in a house with established cats.

Yeah I really don't want to get into it about ex-DP.
There's one pet boarding place within 200km. I have no idea if they would take an undesexed cat, but he is vaccinated. If separating them doesn't work out I'll call them on Monday.

I'd leave home wrecker in the laundry. No way would I be cat sitting an undesexed male - why is he not desexed anyway? There's a massive unwanted kitten problem so its irresponsible to not desex pets. I'd tell ex DP you will never be having this cat back while he's undesexed, and in the meantime he can live in the laundry.
We have two cats and when they first arrived in the house (at different times), they lived in the laundry while they and the other pets got used to each other and sniffed out each other from under the door. Worked a treat.
