You can use Polygons but in order to use fur on polygons you will have to UV map the model so the UV's are unwrapped into the 0-1 UV space.
You might be able to get away with automatic mapping but if you plan to colour the fur I would recomend you sew your UV's so you can decide where the texture seems will be.
