It's from what you eat, especially if it's something you've eaten in more excess or separate from a meal (which tends to get mixed up all together).
Or even in part of a meal you had the day before that's created slower moving stool through the colon and is met up by another foodstuff stool that moves through slower.
It could also depend on if/when you take fibre supplements..that could be lighter/fluffier.
I get it on occasion, especially if I have a meal with darker/heavier foods compared to lighter foods/snack stuff.
I think meats are digested much slower compared to veggies/salads/chocolate/some carb-type fluffier foods.
Oh, if you have iron supplements or maybe protein supplements, that can affect it as well as the probiotics that could change the activity to slower/faster.
*Heather* I give suggestions, do with them what you will.
