Your cat has tactility, because he's fuzzy-looking. I would like to stroke his fur.
This makes me think of the cat in The Nightmare before Christmas, and the cat in Coraline. Also, I recently encountered a stray cat like this, black and emaciated. I fed him a little. He was affectionate and appreciative, but weak. He went off and I never saw him again. I don't think he lived much longer, but I'll never forget him.
If you haven't seen either of the movies I listed, you should. They are both stop motion by director Henry Selick, and are very artistic.
