There was another thread on this topic just a couple of weeks ago.

The consensus of most people on that thread seemed to be that most cats don't actually do harm to frogs, but just play with them. Have a look at this:

Frogs will be going into hibernation around now, so there will inevitably be fewer frogs around.

Personally, I wouldn't try to use mesh over a wildlife pond, because it's too easy for birds and small animals to become entangled in it.
