Why I can't say... The cat drinks milk and I am paying. I think it should be correct...

Why 'bezahle' instead of just 'zahle'? What effect does the 'be-' prefix have? Does it make it somehow more in the present or more continuous?

Thanks.

I pictured a man confessing this while drunk ''that stupid cat all it ever does is laying around and drinking milk AND I'm the one who pays for it''

Why is 'the cat's drinking milk..' so wrong. Duo needs to try and understand apostrophies.
