Our newt, Tiger, is a pretty peaceful guy. He's just occupied with doing his own thing: eating blood worms and swimming around his tank. He doesn't care about what's happening outside his home; it doesn't affect him and he gets fed either way. It's almost therapeutic, watching him swim around with no cares or worries. Just swishing his tail back and forth and swimming around because he feels like it. Often, I can feel his calmness rubbing off onto me after just a few minutes of watching him. I like our peaceful coexistence, me sitting with him to cool down and him not caring about my presence. And as long as I don't try to handle him, our coexistence remains peaceful.
He's a wonderful companion, though not the kind that wants to cuddle up to you.
