Steve, I install many of these animals, and you are absolutely correct, you have to go parrallel with the joists, but I have never had to cut one. All the ceiling stairs are 22" to 24" wide. Therefore the ceiling joists should be 24". 16" are in walls.

Check this out. I think that there might be an oversight somewhere.
