What makes feces sticky?

What causes feces to sometimes leave excessive, difficult-to-remove residue on the perianal area or on toilet paper? What causes it not to leave any residue at all? Is it related entirely to macronutrient intake (fat, fibre, water)? Or are other factors involved?

(Supplementary questions. If it is caused by a high-fat, low-fibre diet, does that mean low-carbers always have sticky feces? And why is cat feces never sticky?)
