What about adding some or all of the left leaning Catalan parties to a national left coalition? Are they too toxic or do they refuse to join?

PSOE refuses to accept even the abstention of the Catalan separatists.

PSOE wants Podemos and Ciudadanos...which is impossible according toPodemos and Ciudadanos

But PSOE claims no abstention with PP..and Ciudadnos claims no support with PP leader Rajoy

So third elections...isn't it?

A pleasure

Rajoy could stay as caretaker indefinitely (for 4 years) until he wants new elections at which point he can ask the King for a mandate and if he fails to get support there would be elections in 4 months.

After Rajoy got 14 more seats than in December, "even boiling water won't unstick him from the chair", as the Spanish idiom goes.
