From Wikipedia:

Notasulga is a town in Lee and Macon Counties in the U.S. state of Alabama. As of the 2000 census, the population of the town is 916. The portion in Lee County is part of the Auburn Metropolitan Area. Author Zora Neale Hurston was born in Notasulga in 1891.
Notasulga is also home to Sammy the Cat, who has garnered considerable national news coverage over the past decade. Unfortunately, I didn't know of this when I was there and didn't spend any attention looking for this media darling.
