how to make a white fur

I've been looking this forever but i didn't find it yet.
google ,yahoo ,bing ,cgsociety and yes i found tutorial of fur in photoshop but different colors and still cartoonist. in this tutorial i found my own question, 8months ago that how to make white fur?
i thought its a good time to make a thread in cgsociety. after all ita a biggest cg site and there is a threat still running about fur
"What's the best way to make thick, packed fur?"
and he want fur like kung fu panda and its exactly what i want but the title is not clear for others. if someone want to search it it would be difficult to find so that's why i created new thread (sorry if its wrong)
so back to the point
white fur like in kung fu panda or happy feet.

PS: i am using maya

I would suggest that, before going any further, you change your lighting to one single light casting shadows. The look of the fur will drastically change with shadows on it and definitely look better.

problem with lights

so i did some work on fur and it looks fine for me but when i put some spot light on it it gets bad.
here is without spot light


and this one is with 3 spot light



spot light setting is just a
1) depth map shadow
2) in mental ray shadow section "use mental ray shadow map overrides
3) shave shadows "resolution 1500 and fuzz 30"
