the Greys must be a sentinent form of life, meaning they require food, that is why they mutilate cattle (humans' grub) in the same way we do for food. I have read that they ingest food through their skin, osmosis-like, good nutrients in, bad nutrients out. This is based on the supposed autopsies that have been conducted on the Greys

You overlook the fact than an Et having completely different biological makeup to anything on earth would be prone to bacterial/ micobal infection from anything live it might come in contact with. This would seem to rule out munching on cattle or anything else.
its been shown even here on earth that isolated folk coming into contact with travellers have been prone to disease they have no resistance to and succome. The australian aboriginis were almost wiped out by smallpox.
Think war of the worlds, what killed the "martians"?
My own thoughts on it are that IF cattle mutes are indeed the work of et not some earthly cult sickos, then they likely choose cattle to study how a carbon based lifeform lives and interacts with its enviroment, simply because cattle are often found in remote areas, easily "caught", and dont hide. Et might have no preferance for one species over another just because one can build things, remember they are "Alien". Another reason might be than a herbivor or carnivor makes a better model for understanding biology/ food chain than an omnivor who eats crap like mcdonalds ! maybe they cannot identify the "food" in a big mac either!
