Its Colour

Its : possessive pronoun
I like its colour

All the common contractions with subject it are really grammar markings:

it's [meaning 'it is'] Progressive or Passive
[meaning 'it has'] Perfect
it'd [meaning 'it would'] Conditional
[meaning 'it had'] Pluperfect
it'll [meaning 'it will'] Future

It's nice to see you.
