Hi Tashi,

The best way to encourage frogs to your garden (or make them stay) is to provide them with a pond or some permanent water source. Gardens with a diverse range of plants and lots of hiding places like rocks and logs often retain frogs better. It is not unusual to get a banjo frog in your garden as they can roam a long way from water and burrow underground when its dry. It is unlikely your cats will interfere too much with the local frogs if they are kept inside at night.

Good on you, I think every garden is improved by making it 'frog friendly' :D Hopefully you can attract a number of them to your place as a result.
