I generally use acrylic paint for everything and have used it in the past on short haired fleece and it worked just fine. Another option of course would be to use strips of darker (or black fabric) for the detail. It will possibly take longer but is easier to keep straight.

But acrylic paint from wilko's or £land will work just fine if you prefer the painting route

Masking tape will help you keep straight edges!

Reminded me of something I fluffed up on a few times, but even with masking tape use a stippling technique rather than brushing it on (so pat it on) its a bit more time consuming but it stops the paint from bleeding under the tape and saves a lot of tears.

I've seen people get some awesome results on fursuits using an airbrush with watered down acrylics, pretty sure that technique would work for you as well
