          • Sure, but animals are still alive while wearing their fur. They're dead when you're wearing it, so your hat won't grow any new fur. 13 min ago

        Per APA Style, the answer is that the possessive of a singular name is formed by adding an apostrophe and an s, even when the name ends in s (see p. 96 in the sixth edition of the Publication Manual). Therefore, in the example above, the correct usage would be “Adams's (2013) work.”
