Hi,

It's hard to be sure from that photo but its definitely a juvenile 'tree frog' of some description. There would be lots of young frogs moving about at this time of the year before winter sets in.

As far as repelling them, tree frogs would be difficult unless you built a tall fence with a backward facing lip but that would be impractical! You're definitely doing the right thing keeping the cat confined as much as you can, unfortunately I think there will always be collateral damage (as harsh as that sounds) but there would be fewer frogs being eaten compared to a free-ranging cat.
