Sorry to be pedantic, but this is one case where punctuation is important: Do you mean "it's" as "it is", or as a possessive? If the latter, there's no apostrophe.

I too was itching to know ... it's or its. But I hadn't liked to ask.

I can never forget which is which after Miss Austen (my inf/jr school headmistress) made me write out 50 times when I was 9 :

It's means it is.

No, my fault ( flipping spellcheck!!)

It’s «   its »
