I have a cat, and a 7 month old akita. i was thinking about bringing in another home companion for our akita, because he gets restless when we aren't home. how will a blue tick respond being raised around a bear and something he would consider "prey'?

I would not suggest a bluetick for a home with a cat...unless you are willing to run the chance of getting rid of the cat. Blue ticks are born "treers". They get along great with other dogs but he might view your cat as prey. The cat will probably run, triggering the natural instinct to tree it. I HAVE seen blueticks that get along with cats, so it CAN be done; However in my opinion it is rare.
