Sorry, Nate. Won't do it. "Its" is a possessive form in that statement not a contraction to represent the term "it is"
Ha Ha, I can't trick you, you are absolutely correct.

The rule is: If you can substitute it is or it has, and the sentence still makes sense, then it's should have an apostrophe. If you can substitute the, and the sentence still makes sense, then its should not have an apostrophe.

Actually your posts are perfect in spelling and grammar.
