Wow! sounds like I have gone nuts!
Sorry for straying from the point, I reread and saw what you were asking about; that is, possesive pronouns.
Here you go, then...
Pronomes possessivos: mine, yours, etc.
Pronomes possessivos evitam a repetição de um substantivo ex. That car is mine!
(to avoid some needless repetition: as in, That car is my car.)
Concordam com o possuidor e não com o objeto possuído ex. She has a dog. Her dog is black.
Nunca se usam com o artigo ex. My dog = o meu cachorro; mine = o meu.
Os possessive pronouns vêm no lugar dos substantivos. (So, won´t appear no noun...)
Os possessive adjectives precedem os substantivos ex. But my dog is white. Mine is white.
Possuidor Possessive Adjectives Possessive Pronouns
The author (dunno why), sounds like biased as for putting the ITS but it may be
because the rule that says that to inanimate things (no living beings you use ´ ).
Thus to avoid that you could say, borrowing the example ''My name is Jey, its is...(?)" (speaking of a ship you could say 'her' to escape from that catch-22).
Of course, being a animated (living) being, you could say: My name´s Jey and my cat´s name is Tom. Or also, could use 'and the name of my cat is Jerry'.
You see? such minutes are to be avoided at any price, when it comes to a basic learner; otherwise he is going to be (even utterly) confused. Hence, teachers and connoisseurs of English leave it out.
Hope it is more clear now.
