Little frog living in my sump pump well.

I recently discovered that there was a little frog in my basement. I first saw it after a rain (my cellar gets water in it from too much rain). Apparently the frog came out and wanted some water. I have no idea how long he'd been down there before I saw him. I let him be...thinking he'd get out the way he came in. I have 3 cats who use the litter box in the cellar,but they have not seemed to bother it. The cats have seen plenty of frogs outside and don't bother them. Well,I didn't see thr frog for a time and wondered where it went....the next day I saw it and tried to catch it and it jumped in the sump pump well. There are plenty of bugs and spiders down there,for sure. It's an old house so froggy food is no problem. It's winter now...can't put it outside...even if I could manage to catch it. So I guess I will just keep an eye on things for now. Thanks for listening!
