Saw a scared black and white cat on Huron and Ashland

On my way home tonight a chubby black and white cat ran in front of an oncoming car, then darted behind a house. It was around 7:45pm and I was headed home on the north side of Ashland. It was dark so I couldn't tell if it had any other markings, so it's very possible I'm not getting the colors right. Little guy ran off before I could snap a picture. Hopefully it's a neighborhood kitty! If not I'll keep an extra eye out.
