  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...

 

@    http://www.brasilescola.com/ingles/possessive-pronouns.htm

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
I                    my car s)                                     mine
 
You               your ticket (s)                               yours
 
He                  his pen (s)                                       his
 
She                 her book (s)                                      hers
 
It                        its name (s)                                    ----
 
We                     our friend (s)                                  ours
 
You                     your pencil (s)                               yours
 
They                    their cat (s)                                  theirs
 
==================================================

 

   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.

    PP.
