What sounds more natural? This:

Her body was warm, like the one of a sunbathing cat.

or this?

Her body was warm, like a sunbathing cat.

(I'm open to other suggestions).

EDIT

Here's some context:

She put her glass down on the floor and wrapped her arms around me. Her body was warm, like the one of a sunbathing cat.

  • It's not the same thing -- your question was "what sounds more natural", right?
